Property History
The R. J. and Lizzie Dunning House (c. 1880) was built for R. J. Dunning, grandson of Sam Dunning, one of two original land grant holders of the area that became known as Harmon’s Crossroads, and brother of Andrew Dunning, who renamed the town Aulander in 1885 when it was incorporated. The house is integral to the history of the Town of Aulander.
 
Property Description
A two-story, three-bay side gable home comprise the main structure. A later ell has been lost, but the chimney from this section remains at the rear of the house. The buyer might choose to build an addition to the rear of the house to replace a demolished ell. The current front porch is a later alteration, creating the existing wrap-around porch.

Interior features include unique diagonal and herringbone beadboard sheathing in the central hall and front parlor, baseboard, six original mantels, heart pine floor, and a beautiful dog leg stair with delicate carved carriage. The original front top-arched-panel door with transom and sidelights has been stripped back to its original wood. The house’s exterior has been painted, highlighting the boxed cornice and paneled pilaster corner boards.

Although some work has been started, the property requires a complete rehabilitation including all new systems (plumbing, electrical, and HVAC), updates and/or reconfiguration of the existing kitchen and baths, repair to the front porch roof and flooring, and carpentry and cosmetic repairs. The buyer will likely wish to build an addition to the rear of the house to replace the original ell section.
 
Additional Notes
The R. J. and Lizzie Dunning House is located in Aulander, Bertie County approximately one hour from the Norfolk-Virginia Beach area, 30 minutes from the beautiful Chowan River, and 45 minutes from Greenville, home of East Carolina University and its medical center.
