231 Sycamore Street Neighborhood Context

  1. 1. Historic Staunton Foundation Preservation Brown Bag “The Process of Imagining, Designing, and Building a Residential Rehabilitation Project, 231 Sycamore Street” February 10, 2017 231 Sycamore is located in the Grandview Addition subdivision of the Gospel Hill Historic Preservation District. Constructed between 1909 and 1914, 231 is a two story, wood frame house with a masonry foundation and piers, intersecting hip and gable (including a section of polygonal hip) patterned metal shingle roof and asymmetrical front porch featuring freestanding and half Tuscan columns. An open, triangular pediment is placed asymmetrically on the front façade which includes 1 over 1 windows, a mullion divided window on the second floor, and a front door with a transom. Two brick chimneys extend above the roof line. 231 Sycamore Street is located on the north side of the street, facing south/west. Within the overall cross section of the street, the house is raised several steps above the sidewalk with the elevational change distributed using a raised front porch and stairway. As the elevation of the parcel rises to the north/ west, the first floor of the house on the back, more closely meets the elevation of the existing grade. Along with its neighbors, the house rests on a plateau between Cannon Hill, the high point of Mary Baldwin University’s Staunton campus to the north/west and Spencer Residence Hall, Woodson Residence Hall and Hunt Dining Hall to the south/west. The maximum total change in elevation within the parcel is approximately twenty feet.
