Resource Description:
This house is an example of the Folk Victorian subtype. It has a cross-gabled roof and a projecting half-width front porch with a hipped roof supported by simple wood posts and with a newer, but compatible, wood railing. Detailing includes perforated scroll-sawn ornament at the gable peaks and a hood with cut-out ornament over one window on the east elevation. The house has a composition shingle roof; newer vinyl siding with the appearance of wood lap siding with corner boards; a concrete foundation; vinyl replacement windows in original openings; and an original wood-paneled door with a rectangular light in a wood-framed opening. The two-car detached garage, which is visible from E. Villa Street, is a newer feature and is not shown on the 1903 or 1910 Sanborn Fire Insurance maps. The property is elevated from the street by an Arroyo stone retaining wall, which is topped by a chain-link fence.
