A very good example of a Second Empire House. For its period of fashion, Second Empire made a “modern” stylistic statement – since it followed contemporary French building construction instead of looking retrospectively to past architecture. The house features a tower and a vertical line of double mullion windows that reinforces the verticality of the Second Empire style. The original window treatments have been removed and conventional replacement siding used, but the asymmetrical plan and massing of this house still make its impact.

Key Second Empire features to note: • pronounced vertical emphasis • the hallmark element – a mansard roof – a dual pitch hipped roof, usually flat topped • prominent dormers, often in symmetrical rows, on mansard roof face, and other towers and domes

• prominent entablature band, below the roof cornice
