Kivlehen House

Edmond Historic Places

This is a two and one-half story Colonial Revival style house of balloon frame construction, approximately 36' x 45' including the front porch. The footings are poured concrete and the foundation is pressed concrete block.

The house is constructed with clapboard siding finished with corner boards, and the cross gable roof is shingled with asphalt and has a moderate pitch. The front facade roof which flares slightly at the moderately-wide eaves has a slope brick chimney.

At each side of the horizontal roof apex, the gable outsets show in the front fagade roofline. The house has three bays with the large front cross gable in the center bay with gabled roof dormers on each side. The gable dormers have clapboard siding and the walls are splayed slightly at their junction with roof, as well as taper. The dormer roofs also flare slightly which mimics the main roofline at the eaves. Dormer eaves join with a small shed roof in the gable at the junction of the roof and dormer fagade. The single fixed wood windows have diamond panes.

Restored and put on the national register in 2008, the house is now home to 525 Realty Group.
