60 Eighth Avenue
Downes Cottage
The land was originally purchased for $2,490 from the Atlantic Highlands Association in December, 1884. However, the house did not arrive until 1930 when it was moved to this location from halfway round the circular avenue at 12 Eighth Avenue; there it occupied center place between similar houses at 10 and 16 Eighth Avenue. The cottage represents the best preserved example of the Carpenter Gothic style in Atlantic Highlands. The two-story wraparound porch and flaring eaves are embellished by elaborate original mill work. a recessed balcony is in the third floor gable. The house has pale blue shingles, columns with dark blue brackets and balustrades, and white mill work. The garden includes a fishpond and a stone wall with stairs leading up to Prospect Avenue.

Triplet Houses?
Three cottages at 10 Eighth Avenue, 12 Eighth Avenue, and 16 Eighth Avenue were built as neighbors in 1882, 1883, and 1885. All three had identical building footprints, a vernacular Victorian style, curving front roof lines and five-column front porch. but a close comparison reveals noteworthy differences. The big surpise is that one was moved halfway around the circling avenue.
