Trentman House – Valley Ridge

Harry C. and Emily P. Trentman first resided in this large house in 1932. Mr. Trentman was part owner of The Trentman Co., realtors specializing in sales and building, and later owned Trentman Oil Co. Wiley G. Clarkson, Treniman’s brother-in- law, was the architect of the Chateauesque house. Composed as an H-plan with a garage wing set on angle, the main block of the house is two stories in height below a steeply pitched hipped and gabled roof clad in variegated clay shingle tile. The exterior is set with patterned brick and stone quoins; window and door surrounds have been painted recently in a monochrome color scheme. A large arch in the breezeway was filled during a later alteration.
