Charming Period House with Georgian Revival details. The one-story frame building has a side gable roof on the front portion and a cross gable on the rear. The small attic dormers are gabled with heavily molded returns. The attached shed porch on Tuscan columns shelters paired nine-over-nine double-hung sash windows and a trabeated surround with leaded sidelights, transom, and corner blocks. Neoclassical detailing carried throughout interior. Built circa 1927 by Frank Green, a real estate investor who later became an agent with Durham Life Insurance Co. After Green lost the house during the Depression, Dr. and Mrs. John W. Carr bought it. Dr. Carr was a professor at Duke University. Both Carrs and then just the widowed Mrs. Carr, lived here until the early 1980s.
