The existing front covered porch addition and rear mass additions dating from the 1950s are proposed for removal, the original 1836 footprint would be restored, and the structure would be relocated approximately 50 feet to the south, while maintaining the current orientation to the village green
Construction of an L-shaped building containing six town home units, two multifamily residential units, and 1,500-square-feet of office space.
