209 Washington Street

This 1-1/2 story minimal tract residence has a rectangular plan with a modest front entry. The house matches its neighbor to the south (207), but with considerable additions. It sits on a board formed concrete foundation and is clad in wide wood shingles. The front gabled roof is covered with composition shingling. There is a shed projection to the south side, a gabled projection to the north and a rear extension. The windows include a variety of styles: 4/1 wood single-hung in front gable, large, fixed aluminum picture windows on front elevation, and aluminum fixed and sliding windows on the side elevations. Decorative shutters have been added to most windows and one shutter to each picture window at the outer edge. An stepped brick chimney is on the north side and is anchored to the roof with a tie rod. The front porch consists of a concrete stoop covered by a gabled roof. The roof is supported by shaped brackets and has a vaulted ceiling. The concrete stairs have wrought iron railings. Symmetry is emphasized on the front elevation, not only by the window, shutter and porch placement, but also by symmetrical landscaping. There is a detached garage to the rear with a chamfered corner door opening, the door has been replaced.
