The c. 1946 James Patton Jr. House is located in the Forest Hills Historic District in Durham, North Carolina. The two-story, side-gabled, Colonial Revival-style house features a white-washed brick veneer and classical details including a modillion cornice, flush sheathing on the dormers, and a fluted door surround.
The house has been renovated with a new roof, updated mechanical systems, and a renovated kitchen with refinished hardwood flooring, new cabinet doors and countertops, and updated appliances. A bay window over the sink was added in the 1970s or 1980s and has been removed with new double-hung windows installed in its place.
The project is slated to receive state Rehabilitation Tax Credits.
