3406 Dover Road, 1928, Contributing Building

George Watts Carr, architect

One-and-a-half-story Tudor Revival house with steeply pitched hipped roof, brick veneer and stucco at

ground floor, stucco with applied half-timbering in gable of front wing, 4/4 sash, intersecting clippedgable

wing, single-leaf front entry beneath an engaged shed-roof porch with carved and pegged beams,

and screened side porch inset at south elevation. George Watts Carr designed the Brownell House, one

of the speculative houses built by Mebane and Sharpe, according to research by Claudia Brown during

her 1980-1982 survey of Durham. Dr. Brownell, an education professor at Duke University, purchased

the house from the real estate company. Later owners, who purchased the house in 1977, rehabilitated

the interior and exterior, including Tudoresque doors, woodworking, and a stone mantelpiece. William

A. Brownell first appears in the 1931 city directory, when he is listed as Duke University professor

living in Hope Valley.
