E. A. Eakle House. 1910s

505 Chestnut Ave, Waynesboro, VA 22980

Story-and-a-half stretcher brick Victorian cottage with an asphalt-shingle hip-and-gable roof with hipped dormers with pressed metal shingle sides. The one-story wraparound porch has classical wood columns and rectangular-section balusters. A front gable is ornamented with houndstooth brick courses and has a segmental-arched 6/1 window. Other features include interior brick chimneys, a large three-part front window under a single segmental arch, a front entry with sidelights and a segmental-arched transom, and a back deck. A well-crafted stone retaining wall with a concrete coping and comer steps extends along Chestnut and Thirteenth. Eakle was a lumber dealer who also had an interest in the brickyard of Fred Leonard, an association that may explain his creative use of brick in his own dwelling.

Carriage house and workshop. 1910s. One-story stretcher brick with asphalt-shingle hip roof, a poured-concrete foundation, segmental-arched 3/3 windows, a sliding beaded matchboard door, and a modern vinyl panel door.
