DESCRIPTION

Setting

This property is located on the east side of John Street just south of the intersection with Clay Street. John Street is a residential street with a tree-lined sidewalk on each side. Parking is located north of the building.

Description

The property contains a 2-part vernacular house. The building consists of a 2-story, 3-bay core that was recently extended by two bays to create a 2-story, 5-bay building. The end-gabled roof is clad with asphalt shingles and includes a small concrete chimney at the seam between the two sections. The building's frame walls are clad with aluminum siding. Canton-like pilasters are located at the corners and the seam between the sections. Windows are replacement 6x6 double hung sash units, arranged symmetrically on the core but not on the addition. The entrance is located in the south bay of the main (south) elevation; it consists of a replacement door opening below a portico with a hipped roof clad with standing seam tin and supported by two square corner posts. The core has a stone foundation, and the addition has a concrete foundation.
