House at 633 Chestnut Street, Berea

633 Chestnut Street, Berea
ca. 1900

This one-and-one-half-story frame residence recalls the Gothic Revival style that was popular in the nineteenth century. Gothic fleur-de-lis and cusp motifs are repeated along the bargeboard under the eaves and at the gable ends. A centralized, narrow wall gable on the front facade also contains the same bargeboard. An oversized pointed-arch window appears within this gable. A single exterior end chimney projects above the steep gable roof.

The entrance has been altered by the addition of a wooden segmental arch upheld by wooden pilasters. A single-story ell which has a flat roof with an iron balustrade is another recent addition.
