Addison Kimrey House. Large, plain Craftsman-style 2-story house with hipped roof, interior chimney, weatherboard, 1/1 sash, and a glazed and paneled front door. The wraparound 1-story porch has Craftsman posts. The house is now divided into 4 apartments. Carpenter Addison Kimrey was the occupant in 1930. Frank W. and Wm. T. White and Ralph C. Bell were the occupants in 1935. [1930, 1935 CDs]

I used to pass this house every day on my way to work up near Durham Regional Hospital. I knew it was pretty beaten down, but I always liked looking at it when I was stopped at the W. Club stoplight - it had a simple farmhouse kind of charm about it. I wish I had a picture of it.

I believe that it was torn down in 2005. Some neo-traditional townhouses were built in its place. They are fine, but not charming, and it annoys me that they won awards.
