This property is located on the west side of John Street in the middle of
the block between the intersections with Maclean and Lytle Streets. John
Street is a residential street, with tree-lined sidewalks on both sides.
A narrow front lawn is located off the sidewalk on the west side, in
front of the historic houses. A narrow gravel drive along the northern
boundary of the property leads through a porte-cochere for off-street
The house on the property is a 2-story building with Italianate
details. The core faces east onto John Street and features a 2-story
rear addition. Key features of the house include its wood cladding,
small chimney, brackets, and window/door surrounds. The core has an
end-gabled roof clad with asphalt shingles with a small brick chimney
near the south end of the ridge. The eaves are wood and incorporate an
interior gutter system. The brackets are scroll-type consoles installed
in pairs below the eaves. The frame building is clad with wood siding
on the main (east) elevation and machined shingles on the north and
south end walls. Fenestration is mostly replacement 1x1 double hung
sash units, arranged mostly symmetrically. Windows on the east and
south elevations feature a lip lintel typical of the Italianate style;
those on the east elevation also feature inoperable louvered shutters.
The door is located in the north bay of the first floor. The door
itself is a replacement unit, but its thick molded surround appears
original to the house. The machine shingle-clad end walls feature
louvered attic windows centered below the peak of the gable. The north
end of the house is the location of the porte-cochere, a hipped roof
element that provides an attached carport; the north end wall of the
core does not have a door connecting ot the porte-cochere. The south
end features a single rank of windows near the southeast corner. The
core has a stucco over stone foundation.
The rear addition is a full-length section. It has a similar cornice to
the core, including the paired brackets. Windows are 1x1 replacement
units, arranged symmetrically on the machine shingled walls.
