This veranda has a hipped roof, which juts over the columns in due proportion with the roof of the house over its walls.
The same dear old man and his equally dear old wife still make their home beneath its hipped roof.
Two-and-a-half stories high, large twin chimneys rise out of the hipped roof and three dormer windows break the front and back.
The cornice and chimney tops are corbelled, and there are iron cresting and finials on the ridge of the hipped roof.
In front of this is a porch or veranda eight feet wide, with a low, hipped roof.
