Description: Plans are for a two-story stucco colonial revival house with attic and cellar. The house has two chimneys with chimney pots, hipped roof, and a shed dormer with grouped windows. The front porch is supported by stout doric columns with trellis at the sides. Included are front, north, east south elevations, as well as first, second, attic, and cellar floor plans. Many drawings show details of the interior of the house. The cellar has a laundry room, range coal room, heater coal room, cold room, a toilet, two stairs, empty spaces, and unexcavated sections. On the first floor are a pantry, kitchen, butler's pantry, dining room, hall, music room, living room, one closet, two staircases, a veranda, and two porches. The second floor consists of four chambers (bedrooms), a sewing room, hall, rear hall, two bathrooms, a shower, two staircases, a linen closet, four other closets, and a balcony. The attic includes a hanging closet, another closet, a hall, maid's room, bathroom, and two unfinished sections.
Title Note: Although Miss E. L. Bolles commissioned the house, she apparently never lived in it. By 1919, it was the residence of Robert H. Lewis of Harvey & Lewis, opticians. (Finlay 3/3/2011)
