In the opinion of the survey, this property is located in a potential historic districe (National and/or local).
This house is significant as an intact example of an early 20th Cnetury pattern book bungalow with garage. It appears that Albert Prato was the original owner.
This is a good, intact example of a modest Craftsman bungalow. It has a rather steeply pitched, front facing, gable roof. A smaller front facing gable projection defines the paritally inset front entrance. Another gable projection to the west defines a bay. Windows are one over one double hung wooden sash obscured by exterior storm windows. Front gable ends are wood shingled. Rafter ends are exposed and knee braces decorate the fa├žade. Porch posts are square columns which rest on the clapboard handrails. A garage and tiny outbuilding "match" the house. (To its rear is a complex of 19th Centruy buildings described under 846 1/2 Donovan). This house is set on a busy street of mixed commercial, residential and multifamily residential structures.
