Architectural Style: Vernacular Turn of the Century Folk
This two-and-a-half story Turn of the Century Folk house stands two bays wide and has a gable roof. A one-and-a-half story wing with an eave front gable end roof is on the east façade. This wing has a flat roofed extension at its rear and a shed roof that extends from the front eave to create a roof on the sun room. It’s likely that this sun room is an enclosed porch. The house is clad in dark wood shingle and features yellow-painted fold fascia trim at the gable ends. The windows are surrounded by decorative hood moldings. The roofs are clad in asphalt shingle. The windows throughout the house are four-over-four double hung originals. There are two front doors on the south façade, one in the enclosed porch and one sheltered by a braced awning. Two interior brick chimneys are located on the east façade.
