9 Cobb Terrace

c. 1925
Oriented to the east to face Cherokee Place, a street that no longer exists, this, and the other odd-numbered houses on Cobb Terrace, have their rear entrances facing the Cobb Terrace. The one-story, hip-roofed Craftsman-style house is three bays wide and triple-pile with wood shingles, nine-over-one wood-sash windows and an interior brick chimney. There is a replacement vinyl window centered on the west elevation and a jalousie window on the left (north) end of that elevation. A two-bay-wide, gable-on-hip-roofed wing at the left features a two-light-over-five-panel door, six-over-six windows, and grouped casement windows on the left elevation. The entrance is sheltered by a shed-roofed porch on a square post that connects to an unpainted wood accessible ramp. The site slopes to the east and there is a hip-roofed dormer on the east elevation and a nine-light-over-two-panel door at the right rear (southeast). County tax records date the building to 1927, though the building appears on the 1925 Sanborn map.

In the 2015 survey, this was deemed a Contributing Building.
