Hidden Plainfield: All dressed up and nowhere to go

The house has interesting Colonial Revival details.
Today's title has something of a clue in it. This Hidden Plainfield property is basically a foursquare with elegant Colonial Revival details.

The odd disjuncture between the upper story details and those of the first floor suggest to me that an original (wraparound?) porch is long gone. The current entry is obviously a later addition.

Side view reveals more of the details.

This home sits prominently in its neighborhood, even though it is all dressed up with nowhere to go.

Do you know where this property is?

Answer tomorrow.
