This group of houses, 800 to 810 New Hampshire Ave., were all built in 1890 by Frank N. Carver, designed by Chas. E. Burden, and owned by Chas. Early and J.P. Jones. (The same team responsible for the 25th St. story book and turreted houses.) They were built "on speculation" - that is for a builder, who would then sell them to the public. The brick facades use brick and iron cornices, mansard and flat roofs, and slate and tin to create a variety of picturesque buildings.
EHT Traceries describes bright yellow No. 806 as: "A small craftsman style cottage with a variety of fenestration." The first floor is three bays wide and as a small window set between the door and a normal window. Windows on the second floor are centered in an intersecting gable. "The intersecting gable has a wide border and a small whatchamacallit at the top which reminds one of Dutch rowhouse design." The corbelled gable, with a pseudo-chimney, is set into a mansard roof. The entry is recessed and has a transom window.
In 2022, this house had 2 beds, 2 baths and was 1,024 sq. ft.
