This imposing Colonial Revival on Avon Way in the Hospital Hill section, was built in 1902. This Colonial Revival residence is an attractive example of the style. Its symmetrical facade is dominated by a beautiful portico and porch. The porch fronts the whole facade while the portico protects the entrance. The Georgian details are particularly fine. The house is set on a granite foundation, as is the porch, and has a steep pitch hip roof pierced by hip dormers, a configuration typical of the 1900. The house is not a copy, but rather an imaginative interpretation of classic regional architecture.
