Architectural Style:  American Foursquare

This house is an example of the American Foursquare, with a Mediterranean flare.  Two and a half stories high and three bays wide, its simple box shape and low hipped roof are typical of the Foursquare.  The house is stucco over frame construction, and its overhanging roof is clad in Spanish tile.  A large central dormer features on the front façade, also typical of this style.  A classically detailed portico frames the front doorway.  One interior stucco-over-brick chimney is set within the north side of the house.  The sash windows are six-over-six and appear to be original.  A one story sun room is located on the south façade.  It features a matching Spanish tiled hipped roof and ribbon windows that look out over the lawn and out to the Great South Bay.
