Architectural Style: Queen Anne

This house is a quintessential Queen Anne. It features a complicated roofline; its eave front gable end roof has three gable projections of varying size and a tower. The house stands two-and-a-half stories high and features an array of shapes in its façade. The largest gable projection highlights a two-bay wide portion of the front façade. A smaller gable dormer sits behind and to the side of this projection. It features small, narrow original multilights. The last dormer features a sunburst design. A long front porch extends beyond the house and meets the roof of the one story addition on the northwest corner. This was likely originally a carport. The house is clad in mustard- and beige-painted wood shingle and has white- and red-painted trim. Its roofs are clad in asphalt shingle. The porch is supported by spindle posts.  The windows throughout the house are one-over-one double hung replacements, but some original multilights remain. Many of the windows are framed by red shutters. The interior brick chimney is located toward the center of the house and rises through the ridge.
