DESCRIPTION

Setting

Mid block on the north side of Green Street on a wide lot with a driveway on the west (left) side to a small detached garage at the rear of the property.

Description

The original house is a two story, three bay gabled building with the ridge parallel to the street. The three equally spaced one over one replacement windows are biased to the left side leaving a larger section of wall between the right window on the corner. The entry door below is not aligned as are the other two windows. It is closer to the corner. There is a rectangular brick chimney slightly off center to the right in the front slope of the roof. A small gabled pavilion on the west gable end echos the geometry of the main block and contains one forward facing window and a pair on the west side. There is an additional second floor window in the main west gable end and a six over six at the attic level. A flat roof porch continues as a one story flat roof addition wrapping completely around the west side.
