Goodbye to a Victorian CottageLeave a comment
Sadly, the end draws near for this little cottage as there is an outstanding demo permit for the property.
The upper level features an intricately detailed wood cornice that spans several levels, and has a projecting pedimented window hood. The same motifs continue on the first level, beneath a shallow shingled overhang covering the bay window and front porch. Together, the two levels of decorative woodwork form a Victorian-era visual delight from ground level. The result is a modestly-sized but proud two-family home. It was likely a single-family home before conversion to its current use as a two-flat.
A new three-flat is set to replace it according to permit records.
