Property History
The house was built around 1820 for Dr. Peyton T. Henry, a member of the North Carolina house of Representatives from 1860-1861 and a strong Unionist leader. The house was purchased by John J. Beasley in 1886, and expanded to include a two-story Victorian addition on the rear. The house remained in the Beasley family until the late 1990’s. Subsequently there has only been one other set of owners.

 
Property Description
Located in the town of Colerain, the Henry-Beasley House is two-story, five-bay Greek Revival home featuring pedimented windows, molded corner posts, and paneled front door surrounded with transom and sidelights that flood the entryway with natural light. Interior features include original heart pine floors, elaborate window and door surrounds, and original paneling. The parlor features an ornate fireplace with Ionic columns, dentil molding, and ornate detailing.

 
Additional Notes
The chimney on the left of the house collapsed during Hurricane Matthew and needs to be rebuilt (main feature image is prior to chimney collapse). The property will need repairs to the plaster walls, painting to both interior and exterior, carpentry repairs, completing (or updating) the existing kitchen, and updates to the existing baths. The home has been vacant for several years so all systems will need to be inspected to determine whether updates are necessary (water is not currently on and propane tank for HVAC is no longer on the property).

Both the house and garage are listed on the National Register of Historic Places and eligible for historic tax credits.

The quiet community of Colerain in Bertie County is just steps from the Chowan River, which leads to the Albemarle Sound. Opportunities for recreation abound in Bertie County, as the Roanoke, Chowan and Cashie Rivers all pass through the county. You can also enjoy birding at the Sylvan heights Waterfowl Center in Scotland Neck and canoeing at Merchants Millpond State Park. The area is rich in history, and nearby historical sites include: Hope Plantation, Port o’Plymouth Museum, Somerset Plantation, the Newbold-White House, and numerous historic attractions in Edenton, Tarboro, Murfreesboro and Historic Halifax. The Henry-Beasley House is less than an hour from Elizabeth City, about 60 miles from both Tarboro and Greenville (approximately 35 minute drive) and Kitty Hawk, Manteo and Virginia Beach are all less than 2 hours away.
