DESCRIPTION

Setting

Mid block site on the east side of Witherspoon Street, asphalt driveway on the north (left) side.

Description

The two story raised foundation aluminum sided rectangular residence has a street facing gabled roof. The full width hip roofed front porch has been fully enclosed on the right side with a three part picture window. A brick stair leads to the original entrance door location and an angled door to the right for the downstairs unit. The windows are one over one replacement units, two in the front five on each side (three above two). There is an exposed square brick chimney towards the rear of the south facade. There is a one story gabled extension of approximately the same footprint as the main block with its center line offset to the north to differentiate the side wall planes.
