Long Description:
The west facing facade of this 5 bay Federal style house is symetric. The gable ends are assymetric and there is a wooden shed or addition constructed around the side entrance on the south end. The cobbles are irregular in size, but generally only two rows per quoin. The quoins themselves are somewhat irregular in size, as if less skillfully quarried and cut, making this somewhat different than most of the cobblestones I've seen so far.

The lintels are solid limestone,and the fenestration is simple one-over-one double hung throughout, although that may not be original to the building. There are a pair of quarter round windows in the gable end, which is also a little different from most cobblestones I've seen. (Fan lights or vents are more common.)

The barn nearby is delapidated, as is the shed behind the house, but the garden is beautiful and the apple trees loaded down with fruit on the middle-autumn day I visited.
