6325 Whitted Road, Fuquay-Varina
The Zeb and Lorena Atkinson House is a two-story transitional Queen Anne-Colonial Revival dwelling distinguished by a five-sided corner tower with conical roof, hipped dormers with latticed Palladian windows, and trabeated entrances with latticed sidelights and transom. The weatherboarded house has a high hipped roof and stands on a continuous brick foundation. Hipped dormers in the dwelling’s front and north roof slopes visually balance the tower, which rises at the south end of the facade. The house features large two-over-two windows at the first and second stories and smaller, arched lattice windows in the tower at the attic. The trabeated entry centered at the facade comprises a partially glazed, single-leaf, paneled wood door with latticed sidelights and transom. Directly above, at the second story, is a similar partially glazed single-leaf door flanked by lattice sidelights and lacking a transom. Two interior corbelled brick chimneys rise through the steeply pitched hipped roof, which is clad in asphalt shingle over the original wood shingles. The boxed eaves of the roof, tower, and dormers all have a slight kick. A finial tops the tower’s conical roof.
