DESCRIPTION

Setting

This property is located on a shady part of Lytle Street. The house, set back from the sidewalk by approximately 12 feet, contains a masonry framed front yard, which is heavily landscaped. A property drive runs along the east end of the house, which is oriented south towards the street.

Description

This property contains a heavily modified house with two rear additions. The house's key feature is its front vestibule which appears to have somewhat in place by 1927. The narrow-footprint core is a two stories high with an end-gabled, asphalt shingled roof. The walls here and on the rear extensions are stucco, and painted dark yellow. The foundation is concrete. The rear additions have shed roofs with the west side 2 stories and the east side 1 story. The main (south) elevation includes three windows at the second level however originally it may have contained 4 windows. The windows are all 1x1 and replacements (all of the house windows appear to be replacements). The vestibule or covered porch consists of a centered unit with wide front gabled roof, exposed rafter tails and stucco-clad walls. The doorway, facing south, has a wide curved entrance that is now filled with a barred door and side windows. It opens out to a set of 4 semi-circular masonry steps that lead to grade. Two single windows flank the vestibule. The west or left elevation consist of a single window on the 2nd level of the rear extension, and on the 1st level a "greenhouse" type window on the extension and two windows of differing size on the core. On the right or east end, there is a single window near the southeast corner of the core and one on the rear addition (the addition is just one story on the east side of the house).
