Resource Description:
This two-story house is an example of the Queen Anne subtype. It has a complex roof form consisting of a steeply pitched, primary hipped roof with two-story gabled bays, polygonal on the first floor portion, projecting from the west, north and south elevations and a centered polygonal turret at the attic level, which engages a lower shed-roofed dormer with bordered-glass sash at its base. Gable ends are detailed with sunken panels, returns, dentiled collarbeams, and curvilinear window sills and brackets. The projecting halfwidth front porch, which has a hipped roof, low solid walls clad in wood shingles, is supported by simple square wooden columns. The house has a composition shingle roof; walls clad in rectangular wood shingles on the second floor and narrow exposure wood lap siding with areas of both mitered corners and corner boards on the first floor; an Arroyo stone foundation; wood fixed, transom and double-hung windows in wood-framed openings; and an original wood front door with a rectangular light in a woodframed opening. The windows in the house have a variety of muntin patterns; most of the sashes have horned stiles. The front yard, which has a mature Canary Island date palm, is slightly elevated from the street by a concrete curb, which is topped by a newer ornamental steel fence. A rear garage, visible from the street, was built in 1996.
