DESCRIPTION

Setting

Mid block site on the north side of Maclean Street, building is on common setback line from the street and sidewalk. There is a wide driveway on the east (right) side to a large two bay garage at the rear of the site.

Description

Rectangular two story, two bay vinyl clad residence with gable end facing the street. The two one over one replacement windows with vinyl shutters are off set to the left side of the facade. The front door on the left is aligned with the window above, and is next to a paired one over one unit. The full width hip roofed front port is three bays with recent square posts resting on brick piers with brick knee walls between. Originally a two bay porch, the left side is further divided into unequal sections, the larger on the left for the brick steps leading to the entrance door. There is a small square window on the front gable.

The main rectangular block has four symmetrically disposed windows on the east elevation and an irregular arrangement of two typical and two smaller units on the west. There are two extensions off the rear facade, the first being a slightly smaller one bay "telescoped" version of the front block with another one bay extension beyond, the same width, but with a different roof line. here is a small square brick chimney at the rear gable end of the front section.
