Resource Description:
This one-story house is an example of the Vernacular Hipped cottage subtype. It has a rectangular plan and a central dormer; a recessed front porch, supported by a simple square wood post with lacelike quarter-round brackets is at the southeast corner. The westerly portion of the south elevation has a polygonal bay with a window on each side. The house has a composition shingle roof, a concrete foundation, above which is replacement T-111 plywood, walls clad in wood drop channel siding with corner boards, wood double-hung windows in pedimented openings with decorative wills (which may be altered by the addition of bull's eye corner ornament from the house interior), and a newer solid wood front door with a transom of colored and leaded glass above. The framing has been removed from the transom above the door, rendering it non-operational. The front yard is enclosed by a wood fence with an ornamental steel sliding gate.
