Clothier Jacob Freedman had this two-story frame Colonial Revival style house built in the late 1920s. Gambrel roof is overlaid with almost full-facade shed-roofed dormers. Other principal elements of this style include quarter-round attic vents, an interior-end chimney, eight-over-one windows, a three-bay facade with one-story wings flanking the core, and an entry detailed with fluted columns and pilasters.


I do remember this being a funky hippie house; likely Duke students in the late '60's-'70's. Lots of cars.
