Notes
Survey number HABS VA-1389
Significance: The house site is located at the top of a small wooded hill. The house is built in a picturesque Dutch Colonial Revival-style, having a gambrel roof covered in asphalt shingles. The gable ends of the house face east and west and show three stories of the house. The east facade is the main entrance to the house. The entry is placed slightly to the left of center, marked by a concrete stoop and a small gable roof. The east facade has two windows on the first floor, two on the second, and a lunette on the third. The south facade has a porch supported by four posts. It provides access to the interior through a pair of French doors with sidelights. French doors also lead to the roof of the porch from the second floor. The south facade is the most elaborate and symmetrical of the four facades. The west facade has no doors but has two types of windows. On the right, four windows are placed directly next to each other, separated only by casing. On the left, a bay window extends from the house by about 1 1/2'. The final (north) facade has a small gabled porch at the extreme left. This roof covers a concrete pad that leads to an entrance to the first floor and a concrete stairway that leads to the basement. The right portion of the roof covers a one-story protrusion from the house. The north facade has four windows on the first floor and four on the second.
