DESCRIPTION

Setting

Mid block site on the north side of Maclean Street on the common setback from the street and sidewalk. Driveway is on the right (east).

Description

This aluminum clad three bay street facing gabled residence has been extended one bay beyond the main block with a common eave line on the east side and a slightly indented facade on the west. The three equally spaced two over two windows on the second floor align with the openings below. The front door is on the right. The building is on a slightly raised foundation which places the full width two bay front porch three steps above the sidewalk. The turned wood posts are not equally spaced, those opposite the door being closer together. The east elevation has two typical windows stacked close to the front corner. The rear half of the elevation has two bays of stacked paired window units with basement windows below. There is a stucco chimney at the point where the building has been extended, roughly the midpoint between the two pairs of windows. The west facade is obscured by the neighboring house (29) which has been joined to #27.
