407 West Patterson Place

NR nomination: One-story frame bungalow with side-gabled roof, interior chimney and large gabled dormer.

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

2015 Survey Update: Largely obscured by an overgrown front yard, this one-and-a-half-story, side-gabled, Craftsman-style bungalow is three bays wide and triple-pile with German-profile weatherboards and vinyl windows, including casement windows on the facade. The entrance, centered on the façade, is sheltered by a full-width, engaged, shed-roofed porch supported by tapered wood posts on brick piers that has been enclosed with screens. The house has exposed rafter tails, knee brackets in the gables, and an interior brick chimney. A gabled dormer, centered on the façade, has replacement wood shingles and paired metal casement windows. A full-width, shed-roofed brick wing extends across the rear (south) elevation. County tax records date the building to 1922. Were the NRHD to be updated the building would likely be considered noncontributing due to the altered front dormer and porch.

One-story front-gabled frame garage with plain weatherboards and batten doors on the north elevation. In the 1998 survey, this was deemed a Contributing Building.
