- Nation Register nomination: “Sunny Side is a well~detailed, little-altered, two-story T-shaped frame Italianate style house with some Gothic Revival style features constructed in 1871 …. The cross-gable roof house with an elaborate bracketed cornice faces north and has a three-bay wide, single-pile main core with ornate two-bay hip-roof front porch, a projecting double-pile gable-front wing and rear ell at the east, and a small one-story single-room wing at the west. …
- “Approached by a long gravel driveway, Sunny Side is situated on a slight knoll near the rear of a well-landscaped two-acre yard which retains remnants of the gardens planted by the original owner, textile magnate Lawrence S. Holt. The present house tract, once the center of a 600-acre working farm, is now bordered by contemporary houses located on large lots which line the road.”
