This structure was built prior to the development of "Cobb Terrace," likely sometime between 1910 and 1915.
Built concurrent with the neighboring house at 8 Cobb Terrace and initially identical in form, this two-story, hip-roofed house has been recently renovated. The Craftsman-style house is three bays wide and triple pile with a projecting, second-floor, hip-roofed wing centered on the façade. The building has plain weatherboards, replacement three-over-one Craftsman-style wood-sash windows, and an exterior brick chimney on the right (south) elevation. The one-light-over-one-panel door centered on the façade is sheltered by a full-width, hip-roofed porch that wraps around the left (north) elevation as a one story space, enclosed after 1992, with a one-story hip-roofed addition at its rear that extends the full depth of the left elevation. The porch is supported by tapered wood columns and has a replacement wood railing. A two-story, hip-roofed ell extends from the left rear (northeast) with a second-story, projecting, hip-roofed bay on the left elevation. A one-story, hip-roofed porch at the right rear (southeast) is supported by a post matching those on the front porch. Its earliest occupants were likely the Daggett family though a plaque on the house names it the Bahnsen-Herzenberg House.
