This one-story, hip-roofed Ranch house is four bays wide and double-pile with a brick veneer, vinyl windows, and an interior brick chimney. The entrance, near the right (north) end of the façade is a solid door with molding applied to create three panels and has four-light-over-one-panel sidelights. It is located in an inset bay with vertical wood sheathing and is accessed by an uncovered concrete terrace that extends across the right two bays of the façade. A later wood deck extends from the terrace along the north elevation of the house, supported by metal posts. It leads to an entrance on the north elevation and shelters a basement-level three-light-over-two-panel door on that elevation that is flanked by vinyl windows. While county tax records date the house to 1960, it is not present in city directories through 1963 and likely dates to the mid-1960s. Martha Grady Dalton, a school teacher, occupied the house for many years.
The reason the date that this house was built is not clear is due to it not being built on this lot. It was moved to this lot after Mrs. Dalton purchased it from the area being cleared to build South Square Mall. The mall opened in 1974.
Mrs. Dalton moved into the house during the 1960s and remained the owner and occupant until her death in 2018. Her daughter, Francine Dalton Davis, trustee of the Martha Dalton Trust and executor of the Martha Grady Dalton Estate, sold the property to Maze Hill LLC on June 26, 2018. The new owner has converted the basement into two apartment units, with the main house, facing Fayetteville Street, being rented as a single family dwelling.
