DESCRIPTION

Setting

Mid block setting on the south side of Leigh Avenue. Narrow driveway on the west (right side).

Description

Two story, two bay stuccoed residence with a street facing gabled roof. The roof is a steeper pitch (12/12) than most on the street and has a heavy cornice with returns at the raking cornices. The two one over one replacement windows at the second floor are widely spaced, being closer to the corners than usual. A smaller similar unit is centered in the gable end. The full width hip roofed porch has been enclosed with six window and transom units on a clad knee wall and a door with two side lights on the right hand side at the top of a flight of six concrete steps. The east elevation has four windows above three, and the south (rear) has two windows above a window and a door.
