The Dr. Thomas H. Avera House, c. 1874, exhibits local architectural significance as a representative of a rare rural Wake County house designed in the Italianate style with Gothic Revival influences. The two-story, T-shaped frame house with its Gothic-inspired steep gable roofs and decorative gable trusses is balanced by its high-style Italianate porch and interior finishes. In addition, the Dr. Thomas H. Avera House maintains a high degree of integrity with respect to design, setting, workmanship, materials, feeling, association and location.
