Notably unusual for its large size and distinctive mansard roof, the Noah Webster house attracts notice while one is traveling through Deal Island. It is significantly larger than most 19th-century Deal Island houses with its three story elevation and center hall, double pile plan. The 6 bedroom, 3 bath Victorian home has water views and abundant wildlife situated on 7.9 acres with pond for fishing. Water is tidal and can be navigated with a small boat with trolling motor, kayaks and paddle boards.
The principal elevation is a symmetrical five-bay facade with a center entrance and flanking sash windows. The unconventional mansard roof is pierced by five pointed arch dormers. The hip-on-mansard roof is an unconventional adaptation of the standard mansard roof where the top portion of the roof not not visible from the ground. In addition, the amount of decorative Victorian trim exceeds that which is normally found on houses in water-oriented communities. Attached to the back of the house is a large service wing detailed in the same manner as the main block.
With a little love this home could be brought back to the grandeur that originally existed. Home is being sold as is. Purchasers to do their due diligence to determine any approved uses or historical requirements for renovations.
