Comments:A twin to this home is located at 418 Gretel
Architectural Comments:Another example of a low-pitched roof home with clerestory windows. One interesting detail on the front facade is a series of stack bond bricks between the clerestory windows that separate them from the running bond bricks. Wing walls extend from each side of the home to provide additional privacy.
