DESCRIPTION

Setting

This lot contains a single house constructed just 3 feet from the sidewalk. The narrow, flat lot is well shaded. A property drive is located immediately west of the house.

Description

This property contains a single residence considered noncontributing mainly due to the design of the enclosed front porch combined with newer cladding and replacement windows. The 2-story frame house has an end- gabled asphalt-shingled roof with a large stucco clad chimney at the east end of the crest. The walls on the core and its 2-story, shed-roofed rear addition are clad in vinyl clapboards. Across the main (south) fa├žade are three sash windows with simulated divided lights. The front porch, which appears to be entirely rebuilt as a front addition, contains a shed roof, vinyl-clad walls, and a centered door flanked by large paired windows. A masonry landing at the door contains stairs facing east and leading down to grade. The west end of the core has no windows. The east end contains aligned windows at the 2nd and 1st floors near the northeast corner, and three windows on the addition (two at 2nd level and one at 1st level).
