Resource Description:
This one-story house is an example of the Queen Anne subtype. It has a roughly rectangular plan and two bays on the south facing street elevation. The easterly bay, which is recessed behind the westerly bay, has an altered jerinhead roof and a projecting, uncovered front porch with a non-original railing of flat curvilinear wooden balusters designed to simulate turned posts. The westerly bay, which ends in a polygonal configuration with a window on each side, has a gabled roof with fish-scale shingles in the gable end. The house has a composition shingle roof, wood drop channel siding with corner boards; an Arroyo stone foundation, vertical wood tongue-and-groove sashing at the base; wood double-hung windows, one with colored bordered glass, in pedimented openings with decorative sills, and a non original solid wood front door in its original wood-framed opening. The front yard is slightly elevated from the street by a concrete curb and has a gravel driveway. The carriage house at the rear has a steeply pitched gabled roof, wood board-and-batten exterior walls, and an upper hayloft door with visible metal hinges and straps. The main doors are obscured from street view by a wood driveway gate. Although the house has experienced some alterations, it clearly conveys the time period of the district in its material, workmanship, design and vibe.
