c. 1895. 1516 2nd Ave.

The Queen Anne/Colonial Revival design of this dwelling features an extensive veranda, a broad porte-cochère, and a semi-circular second-floor porch. The columns of the veranda and porte-cochere are grouped in pairs and are thin and delicate. The roof of the corner open tower changes pitch at the eaves, becoming almost flat. Thin classical brackets support the soffit of all the roofs.
