Decorative Details/Unique Features:

There is a Neocolonial portico with squared posts (doubled with a small space in between on both sides) which have a small cap on them. There are non-functional decorative shutters on the front elevation.

Evidence of Integrity Location/Materials:

This building is set-back the same distance from the curb as the other houses on the street (in the Southwest direction). This building has the same style as some of the other houses in the neighborhood. Houses in the neighborhood that have the same style include the house at 2015 Charles Street (#3021) and the house located at 2005 Charles Street (#3026). This building seems to have originally been built as an apartments building instead of as a large house that was divided up into smaller units (based on the symmetry of how the units appear to be laid out). The casement window in the upper half-story of the front facade has the original 6-panes with wooden muntins.

Additions/Alternations to Primary Building:

There is an addition to the back. Evidence that this is an addition is that the windows on this section of the building are much smaller and do not match the overall dimensions of the windows on the rest of the building. There are vinyl replacement windows throughout the structure with the exception of the original casement window in the upper half-story of the front facade.

Condition of Primary Building: Good
Observable Threats: other
Compatibility with Adjacent Land Uses:

This property is located fairly close to Princess Anne St. which is a commercial area. This may pose some threat to the residential nature of this neighborhood. This property is adjacent to other residential properties. The style and size of the house match the general style and size of many other houses in the neighborhood.

Potential NR Eligibility: Contributing
