45 Highland Road

Architectural Description: 

The look is a nod to Second Empire/Queen Anne but this house may have been a Four Square when first built.
Steep "mansard" roof seems to have been re-shingled. The roof of this home visually suggests a structural change from a hip to mansard roof to accommodate a full third story.
