Welcome to
1017 Camelia Drive

A brick formal entry with coach lights marks the entrance to this stately Neoclassical home built in 1978 by E.B. Miles, a prominent figure in the history of Pembroke's rebirth. Azaleas, Magnolias, and Crepe Myrtles opens to a circular drive surrounding a four tiered babbling fountain.

Mr. Miles was a councilman for the City of Pembroke from 1963 to 1983. During that time Pembroke upgraded its water system, constructed the city's first municipal sewage system, purchased its first firetruck, and built City Hall.

Having risen in has banking career from an assistant cashier in 1946 to president of the Pembroke State Bank, Edgar Billy Miles set out to build a grand estate in the heart of the town he loved. Located on 2.11 acres, directly across from the Pembroke Library, he chose a traditional plan that would embrace the romance of Southern living.

In true Classical Revival style, the full brick home has presense. Full height Corinthian columns grace the front porch, topped with a front facing pediment. Formal symmetry of windows and roofline add to its grandeur. A side entry two car garage was a modern convenience that did not spoil the aesthetic.
