Architectural Style: Queen Anne
This later Queen Anne has features reminiscent of the Arts and Crafts style, such as a hopped roof, and wide, flared eaves. However, its complicated roofline and now-enclosed wrap around porch denote the Queen Anne. Standing three stories, this house is of frame construction with white asbestos clapboard siding. Its prominent hipped roof is of asphalt shingle and has attractive hipped dormers on each side. The windows throughout the house are one-over-one double hung replacements. The enclosed porch features alternating bays of one-over-one windows with panels of glass block. The house features two separate front doors on its east façade. Two interior brick chimneys feature at either end of the roof’s ridge line.
This house appears on a 1915 map of Patchogue as a property owned by E. Petty.
