This sizable Crocker Highlands Dutch colonial revival presents an intriguing assortment of dormers to the street – both inset and gambrel roofed. The roof above the central entrance is gambrel as well making for an especially symmetrical and especially Dutch composition. Inside, the details throughout are scaled up a few notches in keeping with the substantial proportions of the home. There are multiple fireplaces and broad slabs of wood at the base and the crown as well as an unusual window jamb molding that runs the full distance between the picture rail and the floor.
