DESCRIPTION

Setting

Mid block on the south side of Leigh Avenue, driveway on the west (right) side, low planter wall on the sidewalk between the two entry stairs.

Description

Two story stuccoed two bay elongated foursquare twin residence with a hip roof and central dormer facing the street and matching one facing the rear (south). There are similar dormers at the mid points of each side roof. The two one over one windows on the second floor do not align with the entrance doors below or a large divided picture window in the center of the first floor. The full width hip roofed porch has five aluminum supports with metal railings in between that match the railings on the concrete steps to the concrete porch deck. The west wall has typical windows stacked near the front corner then three over three on the rear half of that facade. The rightmost on the second floor is a pair. There is a chimney 2/3 of the way back on the west side.
