Tudor Revival, 1915, 1920

This large, brick and stone home is a virtual pattern book for the Tudor Revival style. The large, central block of the house is intersected with a shallow crossfan light above echoes the two pairs of French doors with fanlights that flank the center entry gable block at the north end of the main façade. To the front of this is a large, rectangular, one story porch topped in a crenellated parapet that protects the main entrance of the house. Its Tudor arched entry is in the center and is flanked by empty lancet window openings. Stone outlines the doorway and windows. These openings are repeated on the sides of the porch also. Above the porch, in the second story of the cross gable section, is a pair of small paned windows that are outlined in quoin-like stone and topped with lapel molding. To the south of the cross gable is the two-story main block of the house. Central in this portion of the main façade is a massive, two- story, limestone, bay window. The window treatment in the first and second story is identical with three, diamond-paned, stationary windows separated by mullions in the front of the bay. Mullions also separate the transoms placed above these windows. Identical, single windows in the side of the bay are set at an angle to the house. Pargetting-like decorative stonework separates the first and second story of the bay and it is topped with a crenellated, stone parapet.
