DESCRIPTION

Setting

This property is located on the south side of Quarry across from Waxwood. It is a flat lot along a shady portion of the street. A gravel drive runs along the east side of the property. The historic resource - a duplex, is set back off the sidewalk approximately 12 feet; the resulting front yard is framed in a small hedgerow, which is rare in the neighborhood.

Description

The property contains a frame, 2-story, 5-bay simple Italianate style duplex. It has a rather long (for Witherspoon-Jackson) foot print paralleling the street. The roof is an asphalt shingled, end gabled design with a banded, stucco-clad chimney on east end. A two story, shed roofed extension is on the rear. House clad entirely with aluminum siding; the foundation is stucco. On the north (main) fa├žade the three windows are irregularly spaced across the 2nd floor (2x2 sash, possibly original); the cladding covers the reveal. The first floor has 5 openings with the first and fourth windows aligned with the first and third above. The two main entrances occupy the second and firth openings, the latter being near the NW corner. A full-length front porch consists of hipped roof supported by five metal posts, iron railing, and cement floor. Each door has stairs and walks leading to grade and sidewalk. Left or east side of house has four aligned windows, two on the core (off-center) and two on the extension. A similar pattern is found on west end.
