DESCRIPTION

Setting

This lot contains a new house that sits back approximately 12 feet from the sidewalk, and its garage section approximately 25 feet from the sidewalk. This setting creates a small yard in front of the south-facing house. This setback disrupts, to some extent, the streetscape, yet the new house, aside from the garage, appears to be sensitive to and compatible with the historic resource found elsewhere on the street.

Description

This is a noncontributing house constructed c. 2013. It is two story, two section building clad in vinyl siding (clapboard style with shingle style cladding under the gable). The asphalt roof is cross gabled with the main front end gable over the section of the house that faces south onto the street. The two-story L-shaped plan features the main entrance under an extended hood near the southeast corner, and a 2-story section containing a single overhead garage set back approximately 15 feet from the main section in an effort to diminish the presence of the garage. The foundation is cement.

History

This house was constructed c. 2013 on the site of another house constructed around 1900. It had a front-end gabled roof system and two stories but had a slightly small profile than the adjacent house at 9 Lytle.
