DESCRIPTION

Setting

This property is located on the north side of Leigh Avenue near the center of the block between the intersections with Race Street and Bayard Lane. Leigh Avenue is a residential street with a tree-lined sidewalk on each side. The property contains a small garage that is set back from the road, providing off-street parking for the house at 107 Leigh Avenue.

Description

The garage was constructed in two phases. The garage roof is clad in asphalt shingles. The core of the garage is the one-and-a-half-story, one-bay, front-gable roofed structure and the addition is the one-story, one-bay, shed-roofed wing added to the west elevation of the first phase. The entire garage is clad in weatherboard.
