House at 407 Prospect Street, Berea

407 Prospect Street, Berea

This two-story clapboard-covered frame residence has Italianate influence in its design. It is asymmetrical T-shaped plan with a wrap-around porch. Turned wooden posts support a frieze of turned spindles, and curved brackets create an arcaded effect. Pendants suspend from the ends of each brackets. The cornice over the entrance angles to an incomplete pediment which serves to emphasize the entrance. The gable roof and the porch’s pedimental effect fit well with the pedimental-hooded sash windows. A bay window on one side balances the exterior. Brackets embellish the extended eaves of the roof.
