Resource Description:
Style: American Foursquare 

This two-story house is an example of the oversized American Foursquare subtype with Colonial Revival influences. It has a hipped roof with boxed eaves and curving exposed rafters with rounded ends. A brick chimney extends from the peak of the roof and a small off-center polygonal bay with a gable-with-shed roof, three arched louvered vents and rectangular wood shingles in the gable end projects from the northern end of the street-facing elevation at the second floor. The full-width front porch has a shed roof with exposed rafters matching those of the main roof, a row of dentils, and a small centered gable with two groups of three curving brackets and plaster ornament (scrolled vines and garlands) in relief in the pediment, which repeats on the enclosed sides of the shed roof. It is supported by Tuscan columns and has a simple wood railing. A two-story gabled bay with a rectangular upper floor with consoles and a polygonal lower floor projects from the south side elevation. Another polygonal two-story bay projects from the north elevation. The house has a composition shingle roof; walls clad in rectangular wood shingles on the second floor and narrow exposure wood lap siding with mitered corners on the first floor; a concrete foundation; wood casement, double-hung, fixed and transom windows with transoms and upper sashes having lozenge-patterned muntins, all within wood-frame surrounds with - dentiled cornices; and an original wood front door with beveled glass and a leaded-glass transom. The two-car garage, at the end of the driveway and visible from the street, is a later addition to the property, with a lower roof pitch than the house. Its date of construction is unknown. It is clad in wood lap siding and has an extruded metal door with glass panels. The front yard is slightly elevated from the street by a concrete curb, which is topped by a newer wood picket fence.
