Outstanding example of Queen Anne architecture, this house is graced by two turrets in the front; one, a five-sided turret, forms the cozy corners of the front parlor and part of the master bedroom. Exterior detail includes Queen Anne fan design and lacy spindle work. The floor plan is class Queen Anne, with unusually spacious rooms. Lovely spindle work separates the front and back parlors and the woodwork reveals a pressed woody ivy motif in the vertical moldings around the doors and windows.The two fireplaces contain beautiful Victorian tiles.
