DESCRIPTION

Setting

Mid block on the south side of Leigh Avenue, driveway on the west (right) side leads to a small barn/garage at the rear of the property.

Description

This large vinyl clad two story gabled twin is basically a square footprint, being rather broad compared to its depth. The street facing gable has an oversize one over one replacement window with vinyl shutters above two smaller similar units. Windows similar to the gable end unit are aligned at the first floor with the twin entry doors at the center, on axis with a broad flight of steps. The full width shallow hip roof porch is divided into four equal bays by turned wood posts with railings also having turned spindles. The east and west elevations have three windows at each level, aligned and in the same small over large arrangement as the front. There are small chimneys in the center of each elevation just inboard of the exterior wall.
