Chestnut House – Lee

Real estate agent Frank Chestnut was the first resident of this house in 1911, which he purchased by 1917. In spite of its modest size, this house possesses visual prominence by virtue of its composition and ornament. On a corner lot, the wood-framed house has a recessed corner porch with Tuscan columns. The hip-roofed block is surmounted by large dormers arranged in a cruciform plan. A low garden wall topped by a wrought iron fence and terminated by heavy stuccoed brick piers with urns further distinguishes the dwelling.
