DESCRIPTION

Setting

NE corner of John and Green Streets. Sidewalk 10' in from curb and house, 8' from sidewalk.

Description

The main rectangular block of the two story, four bay gabled residence is parallel to the street. There is a smaller 2 bay extension on the left (north) with a single garage door and small paired window on the first floor level. The windows are six over six, possibly original units. The first floor openings are irregular sizes although aligned with the units above. From right to left - single, paneled entrance door, double, smaller single. A flat roof porch extends across the center two bays. There are two small chimneys on the roof ridge. The window pattern suggests that an original three bay house was extended one bay south and given a smaller addition on the north end for the garage. Main structure of house has Italianate detailing with molded cornice and returns.
