Owners of the Gothic house at 1135 Winston Ave. have once again come before the Design Review Committee with plans in an attempt to construct a new two-story residence, but DRC members were not fully convinced the house would be consistent with itself.

Residents are well acquainted with the home and it is even an example in the city’s residential guidelines.
