House

-A A +A
c. 1925. 1042 Pine St.

Built in an expanding residential section of the city, this handsome house combines Dutch Colonial Revival with a touch of Stick Style. The two-story house has dark-red brick walls accented by dark-gray mortar joints, rough stone lintels and sills, a gambrel roof with flared eaves, and a shed dormer extending across the front. An enclosed deck over the side porch provided a ventilated and cooler place to sleep in summer months. The central front entrance with flanking sidelights is sheltered by a small porch with attenuated Doric columns. Adding texture to the structure, the visible gambrel end of the house is clad in a pattern of Stick Style wooden members and wooden shingles.
