English Tudor style residence. It is around 2,520 sq ft in size, and is constructed of brick and stucco with a slate roof. It is located on a half-acre lot, and was originally part of a farm estate. When it was constructed the garden was said to resemble a picturesque park, and featured many beautiful trees including lilac, ancient pear, and money trees.(Submitted on June 10, 2021, by J.T.
