A. P. Finter House. 1926

508 Chestnut Ave, Waynesboro, VA 22980

Two-story Foursquare-form house of stretcher brick-veneer frame construction with an asphalt-shingle hip roof with a hipped dormer. The one-story front porch has clustered tapered posts on brick pedestals. On the north side is a two-tier wing with a porte cochere with two-stage square-section brick pillars on the first tier and a porch with square-section wood columns and a reused 19th-century sawn balustrade on the second tier. Other features include a poured-concrete foundation, an exterior side brick chimney with a single stepped shoulder, a front entry with sidelights, and 1/1 windows. A driveway passes through the porte cochere and connects to the street and alley. Along the driveway extends a fence with historic brick piers and modem lattice panels. Pinter, who had the house built, was a Norfolk & Western station master. (Bowman, Waynesboro Days of Yon, vol. 1 p. 54)
