DESCRIPTION

Setting

Mid block setting on the south side of Green Street, driveways on each side of the twin residence.

Description

This foursquare twin stretches the prototype form slightly by having four bays across the front beneath the centered dormer and pyramidal hip roof. The vinyl clad building is on a raised foundation with a three bay porch across most of the front. The Tuscan columns support a deep frieze with a projecting cornice and shallow hip roof. A broad entrance stair to the two entrance doors occupies the entire center bay. The railings in the other bays are plain. The windows are one over one replacements. The side facades are identical with three equally spaced windows at each level. There are small brick chimneys centered in each unit on the rear wall.
