DESCRIPTION

Setting

Mid block, north side of Maclean, set back from the sidewalk, driveway on the west (left) side.

Description

Two story, three bay aluminum clad gabled residence with the roof parallel to the street. The three six over six windows are not equally spaced, and are biased to the right hand side, with the two rightmost being closer together. The first floor openings including the door on the right are aligned. The two bay full width hip roof porch retains its original turned wood posts and ornamental brackets. The street facing windows have vinyl shutters.

The "L" shaped footprint has the two bay rear gabled wing aligned with the west gable end. The wing has been extended out on the east side to also meet that gable end facade. The side window units vary in size but are all smaller than the front. There is also one small window at the first floor level in the west gable end, and louvers at the attic level. There is a small chimney in the center of the ridge of the rear extension.
