Sartori Cottage

-A A +A
late 1860s. 603 Clay St.

A charming combination of the Gothic and the Italianate have been brought together in this brick one-and-a-half-story cottage. Below the delicate sawed bargeboards of the gabled roof are elaborate cast-iron window lintels composed of a single arched form within which there are two smaller segmental arches. Inside are an impressive curved stair in the entrance hallway and a marble fireplace in the living room.
