406 West Patterson Place

NR nomination: One-story bungalow with side-gabled roof and exterior end-chimney. The enclosed front porch greatly alters the appearance of front facade.

In the 1998 survey, this was deemed a Contributing Building.

2015 Survey Update: The house is three bays wide and triple-pile with German-profile weatherboards, replacement windows, exposed rafter tails, and knee brackets in the gables. The full-width, front-gabled porch had been fully enclosed in 1992, but by 2002 the left (west) end of the porch had been reopened revealing a replacement front door and a replacement tapered wood post on brick pier at the left front (southwest) corner. The right (east) end of the porch remains enclosed, now with paired casement windows with paneled aprons below fixed, multi-light transoms. There is a projecting, gabled bay on the right elevation that has a glass-block window. An exterior brick chimney on the left elevation is flanked by windows. Near the rear of the left elevation, a projecting gabled wing, constructed after 1992, has a canted bay with hipped roof in the gable end and an uncovered wood deck to its rear. A wide gabled wing at the left rear (northwest) has an inset bay at its northwest corner with a basement-level entrance below. County tax records date the building to 1922. Were the NRHD to be updated, the building would likely be considered noncontributing due to the enclosed porch.

Replacement garage with German-profile weatherboards in the gables, replacement paired doors and a gabled carport on the right (east) elevation that is supported by square columns. The garage post-dates 1992. In the 1998 survey, this was deemed a Contributing Building.
