Decorative Details/Unique Features:

The chimney located on the southern corner of the house has a light bump-out/corbeling detail near the top of it. There is a decorative row of soldier bricks under the windows

Evidence of Integrity Location/Materials:

The set-back of the house matches that of the adjacent properties. There does not appear to be any patching (different colored bricks) in the brickwork.

Additions/Alternations to Primary Building:

There is an addition on the side Southwest elevation of the house. Evidence that this is an addition is that the walls of the addition do not meet up with the walls of the original structure. The roof of the addition is also not at the same height as the original structure. (The hight of the addition is only one story.) The cladding material of the addition is also different; it has vertical wood clapboard but the original structure has running bond brick cladding. There are replacement vinyl windows throughout the house. The door on the front elevation appears to be more modern in style than the house so is likely a replacement as well. The uncovered front porch appears to have replacement wood since the wood appears to be newer.

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
Evidence of Construction Date:

Tax records located at the Circuit Court Archives in Fredericksburg, VA.

Other Comments/Salient Details:

There are vines that appear to be taking over in some areas of the exterior of the house. There does not appear to be obvious damage currently but neglecting to control the vines and even having them could damage the brickwork cladding on the home.
