This narrow two-story residence sits on a steep bluff with the rear of the property looking out over Alley Pond Park. The front elevation is distinguished by a one story wing projecting toward the street and clad in Featherock, a natural volcanic stone. There are minimal windows visible from the street. The frame of the house is cantilevered, both the walls and floors over a reinforced poured foundation to account for the siting.
