One-story hip roof Ranch house with German siding below window sills and flush beaded sheathing above. Paired 2-over-2 horizontal sash windows are set at the corners. Entrance has a brick stoop with metal railing. Interior chimney. At right front is a projecting bedroom wing; at left is a sunroom with original jalousie windows. Archie Ogden, a student, was the owner-occupant in 1950. [1950 CD]   Robby Poore, son of Anne and Ray Poore - and grandson of the Van Arsdalls, who lived at 421 Carolina Circle - has posted some fabulous mid-century photos of Carolina Circle, and Durham in general, on his personal Flickr page.  There are several albums (1948194919501950-19541957196719681969, and 1970), many of which contain a multitude of interior and exterior shots of 426 and 421 Carolina Circle.  A few of them include: the front facade, a side exterior, the living room space, the rear alley, and a view front the front door of the now-demolished Apex Street Bridge.
