Long Description:
The following was obtained from Cobblestone Landmarks of New York State by Olaf William Schelgren, Jr., Cary Lattin & Robert W. Frasch:

Here the basic cottage form, one and one-half stories, has gone Gothic. By placing a gable in the center and interrupting the eave at each side with a dormer, the roof is given the picturesque quality championed by A.J. Downing in the 1840s and 50s. Downing disliked Greek Revival and wrote widely read books and articles espousing new styles, particularly Gothic Revival. Hawks built his cottage in 1848 of dark red water-rounded cobbles from the Sodus area.

This book has a great picture of this home, without all the trees blocking the view.
