The Historic District Review Board met this Monday to revisit a Certificate of Appropriateness for renovations at 111-113 Peach Street. The project was originally submitted for review at the January 16, 2018 regular meeting.
At the January meeting the Board voted 3-2 to reject the application based on the proposed roof pitch change and the addition of a proposed new front dormer.
At that time there was “much discussion about the proposed roof pitch, and front porch dormer. The Board vote 3-2 to reject the application as submitted. The property owner re-submitted the application with an addendum revising the roof pitch and removing the proposed dormer. All other proposed scope of work projects remains as originally submitted” – from staff report.
The property owners, who were not in attendance at the January 16 meeting, submitted an affidavit attesting to change the roof pitch to a more conforming slope and remove the dormer in question.
The current scope of work consists of hardi 7” exposure siding, azek trim(this is a synthetic material that conforms to the guidelines (azek has been approved for similar projects on contributing structures in the historic district). Window and door locations are to remain the same as existing. A small addition will be added to second floor in rear of each duplex unit, not visible from the street, in the same footprint as existing first floor addition. The renovation also includes new brick steps, a change from six front porch columns to four (two per duplex unit), and the roof pitch to change from an almost flat hip roof to a four-twelve pitch.
