Regarding Perry House. Originally located on Clayton Road just off Colfax, the wood-frame house was built in 1911 by its owner, Lawrence V. Perry, who constructed a number of other notable buildings in Concord. Built as two flats, the upstairs was occupied by Perry and his wife, Isabelle Nunez
Moved to its present location in 1981, the building is Concord’s only surviving example of the Classic Revival style popular at the turn of the century. Characteristic features are the boxy form with hip-roof, the small dormer window in front, siding of narrow clapboards, classic cornice with dentile (small square blocks projecting as from under a cornice) moldings and round columned porch topped by a balustrade. Special features of the house are the upstairs bay windows at both front corners and the classic pergola at the side, an original part of the house. It was converted after its move to a restaurant and now is used as offices.
