Situated at the intersection of Kilbourne and Devereaux roads stands a strong example of a Colonial Revival style residence that largely follows the design tenets of its historical antecedents. The main portion of this historically inspired house embraces the symmetry common to many 18th- and early 19th-century Georgian and Federal era buildings, as well as alluding to those earlier design disciplines by incorporating evenly spaced 8-over-8 windows within its second story, dentil molding within its frieze, and a classical front entryway featuring Doric columns and a detailed transom. Where this early 20th-century residence departs from its earlier cousins is in its tripartite windows on the first story, its exposed rafter tails, and its asymmetrical wing oriented on its south elevation. Complementing this residence’s architectural details is the property’s mature landscaping.
