Resource Description:
This two-story house is an example of the American Foursquare subtype. It has a hipped roof form with curving exposed rafters and a centered hipped roof dormer. The full-width front porch has a hipped roof, a low solid wall clad in lap siding rather than an open railing, and is supported by simple square wood columns. The house has a composition shingle roof; walls clad in asbestos shingles on the second floor (which appears to cover the original material beneath) and narrow exposure wood lap siding with mitered corners on the first floor; a concrete foundation; wood double-hung and replacement sliding aluminum windows (which, though, in original wood-framed openings are undersized); and an original wood paneled front door with rectangular light in a wood-framed opening. The south elevation has a brick chimney and a one-story polygonal bay. The garage at the rear of the property, visible from the street, was built in the 1920’s. The house retains much of its original character, despite the alterations that have occurred.
