This house is a classic Shingle style house. The first floor is brick, and the second floor and roof were wooden shingle (roof replacement not shingle). Original porch removed.

Note the four overhangs (jetties) on the façade.

The prominent front gable roof features gable dormer windows and two shingle styles. The contrasting colors are also important in the overall design.

Detail from previous photo.
Contrasting shingle shapes are emphasized by contrasting paint colors. Note two rows of
dentil molding.

  • Foliated corbel
  • Saw tooth wooden shingles
  • Orange brick with dark mortar
