This 100 year old Fall River residence is good example of shingle style architecture. This style is characterized by wood shingle siding without corner boards and a roof line that is irregular with multiple gable dormers. Unlike the lavish decorations that were popular during the prior Victorian era, Shingle architecture is relaxed and informal.
One of the striking elements of the Shingle style home is the Cornice that runs along a continuous eve line. This Cornice is a build up of elements, namely: a wood gutter, some smaller moldings, a fascia, a soffit, and a frieze board that trim out the eave line. The main molding of this cornice is the wooden gutter and its maintenance and preservation is vital to the character of this building. The owners have made the correct choice of repairing, preserving, and replacing any components of this cornice with similar materials.
