Decorative Details/Unique Features:

There is a step-out/corbeling detail at the top of the chimney which is located on the Southeast elevation of the house. There is brick cladding on the lower portion of the front elevation. There is a soldier brick water-table that separates the brick cladding from the vinyl siding on the front elevation. There is a Neocolonial style portico with doric columns on the front elevation. There is vertical wooden cladding on the front of the portico. There is decorative wrought iron portico railing and hand railing on the steps of the front elevation. There are non-functional decorative shutters on the first story of the front elevation.


Evidence of Integrity Location/Materials:

The step-back of the house is the same as the house on the property adjacent to the house to the Southeest elevation. This footprint size of the house is similar to the size of the houses within the neighborhood. There are other houses within this neighborhood with the same style, for example #3023 (which is also Cape Cod style).


Additions/Alternations to Primary Building:

There are vinyl replacement windows throughout the house. The door has a more modern design so it may be a replacement door. The proportions of the gable dormers on the front elevation seem to be bigger than what would be typical for this size. The roof pitch is also much steeper and the roof is much higher than would be expected for the proportions of the house. The mortar of the top third of the brick chimney has slightly different looking motor than the lower two-thirds (thinner mortar lines) and the brick is a slightly different color. This may mean that the height of the chimney was extended.


Condition of Primary Building: Fair
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.
