ARCHITECTURAL IMPORTANCE:

Built between1869 and 1876, the Queen Anne residence was owned in 1879 by S.A Castle, a commission merchant in New York City.
The intact Queen Ann residence is built in distinctive H-shaped plan with prominent paired gable wings decorated with half-timbered peak ornament and simple barge boards supported by peak molded brackets and contributes to the Hillside Avenue streetscape.

NOTABLE FEATURES OF THE BUILDING:
This two and one-half story three bay Queen Ann house has an H-shaped plan with gabled wings and a clipped southwestern corner.
A central jerkinhead dormer is flanked by gable ends with half-timbered peak ornamentation and deep, plain barge boards with beak molded brackets.
The arched windows in gable ends and brackets at the eves further articulate the design. The second story windows have shingled hoods.
The second story balcony consists of finial posts with bullseye ornament and balusters in the shape of Moorish arches.  Second story windows have deeply molded architraves.
The balcony sits above the central entry porch, which is enclosed in leaded glass, whose octagonal columns support a paneled architrave and beak molded brackets.
A square bay window to the south of the main facade has leaded upper light.
The northern facade (located on First Avenue) has a jerkinhead dormer gable with pendant and deep barge boards.  There is a casement window conservatory to the west with leaded transoms and Tuscan pilaster supports.
To the Southwest (the corner) is decorated with imbricated shingles and barge board with finial peak ornament.
To the south, the gable and contains an arched window and pendant finial.
