Additional Information

General Description

"This wood frame, one-and-one-half story structure is nearly square in shape (25' x 24'). It has a gable roof covered with composition shingles and a concrete foundation. The walls are clad with stucco, horizontal beveled wood clapboard siding on the front addition and dormer and coursed wood shingle siding on the gables. Architectural elements include closed cornice gable ends, a partial length shed roofed dormer, two roof dormers, double-hung multipane windows with wide trim. Some changes to the fenestration include replacement of fixed pane window with a trio of multipaned windows in the shed dormer. The changes are in keeping with the architectural period and it retains its architectural integrity and is a contributing element to the architectural and historic unity of the neighborhood. It is a contributing structure within the Chicken Ridge Historic District."
