History:
Visual Description: An elongated house, now with a hipped iron roof and loft-windows and divided into 2 units, each with a door flanked by windows dating from c1870. But the central facade section is set forward under an eaves-line string-course suggesting a former gable, there are pilasters on the corners and there are heavy yellowwood ceilings inside, all these features point to a much greater age. Inside, it appears that this is indeed the case. There are several all-yellowwood single-panel doors with decoratively shaped panels, as well as yellowwood and stonepine ceilings. The house has a contracted H-plan, now divided into 2 halves.
