This 2-story, 4-bay vernacular twin is one of two (and possibly as many as
four) houses relocated from Baker Street to the north side of Birch Street
as part of the Palmer Square project. The house’s main feature is its half-
length, shed-roofed front porch. It features a side-gable roof that is
clad with asphalt shingles and features two, interior, brick chimneys; one
located on the north (rear) slope of 175 Birch Avenue’s roof and one
located on the north slope of 179 Birch Avenue’s roof. The house is clad
in vinyl siding. All of the house’s windows and doors are replacements.
The first floor of the south elevation features a one-story, half-length,
shed-roofed porch with two front doors in the center, one leading into 175
Birch Avenue (east door) and the other leading into 179 Birch Avenue (west
door). The porch is accessed by a central wood staircase with a double,
wood balustrade. It features three, square, wood posts with a wood
balustrade. The front doors are flanked on their east by one, single, one-
over-one, double-hung sash window and on their west by one, single, one-
over-one, double-hung sash window. On the second floor, there are four,
single, one-over-one, double-hung sash windows, centered over the windows
and doors on the first floor.
There is a two-story, flat-roofed, vinyl-sided addition to the north (rear)
elevation of this twin.
