NR nomination: One-story Craftsman bungalow with clipped-gable roof and dormers and engaged porch.
In the 1998 survey, this was deemed a Contributing Building.
2015 Survey Update: The one-and-a-half-story house is three bays wide and triple-pile with a rear gabled ell on the right end. The house has plain weatherboards, four-over-one Craftsman-style wood-sash windows, exposed rafter tails, knee brackets in the gables, and an exterior brick chimney on the left (south) elevation. A nine-light-over-three-panel door, centered on the façade, is sheltered by a full-width, engaged, shed-roofed porch supported by tapered wood posts on brick piers with a matchstick railing. Two, clipped, front-gabled dormers on the façade each have a six-light Craftsman-style window. An exterior metal fire stair leads to a four-light-over-two-panel door in the right (north) gable. A two-story clipped-side-gabled wing extends to the left of the rear gable ell and rests on the ridge of the ell. It has grouped three-over-one Craftsman-style windows and exposed rafter tails.
One-story, clipped-front-gabled frame Craftsman-style garage matches the details of the house with plain weatherboards, exposed rafter tails, a four-light-over-two-panel, Craftsman-style door on the east elevation, and paired batten doors on the north elevation. In the 1998 survey, this was deemed a Contributing Building.
