Ely House

-A A +A
1909. 509 Knollwood Dr. S.E.

The gabled roof of this loose, well-carried-out version of the Colonial Revival extends out to cover a deep porch running across the entire front of the dwelling. Above, the long, narrow shed-roof dormer has a rhythmic pattern of three paired double-hung windows separated by two very small casement windows.
