Structure: These two identical five story houses were designed as a pair. Each is twenty-five feet wide, has a symmetrically organized facade, and is faced in red brick, laid up in Flemish bond with ironspot headers, above a limestone base. The rusticated limestone ground story has a limestone central entrance portico supporting a balcony with a wrought iron balustrade. The flanking windows retain their original wrought iron grilles; the entrance door is oak and glass with the central panel covered with a wrought iron grille. Tall wrought iron fences with prominent posts enclose the areaway. The three arched French windows at the second story have multi paned casements below fanlights. The copper clad oriel at the third story has twelve-over-twelve wood sash. The windows at the fourth story have eight-over-eight double-hung sash. The copper covered mansard roof with standing seams has three copper clad pedimented dormers. This is fronted by a balustrade at No. 313. An original copper leader remains at the fourth floor of No. 313. A tall chimney rises from the end of each house.
