Architectural Style: Queen Anne
This two story Queen Anne has a typically complicated roofline. Its eave front gable end roof is punctuated on the front façade by a prominent shed dormer. From the dormer rises a hipped projection. Along side this, toward the south façade, rises a tower projection with conical roof. On the south façade a hipped roof projects from the side of the tower to create a balcony. Similarly, a hipped roof projects from the south façade to create a carport. The flared eaves on the front of the house create the integrated porch. The porch, balcony, and carport are all supported by slender Doric columns. The house is of frame construction with white painted wood clapboard siding. The window mouldings are painted light blue. Its roofs are clad in asphalt shingle. The windows throughout the house are one-over-one double hung replacements. The house’s front door is set off-center beneath the integrated porch. The house has two chimneys, one interior brick on the north façade and one exterior brick on the south façade.
