 Located on Burlington Pike in [[Belleview]],​ the Clore House was constructed in the 1890s. ​ It is compact in form, with a tall, narrow facade dominated by a two-story semi-octagonal bay.  The front gable is faced with tongue-and-groove siding, and a small, hipped-roof porch shelters the entrance. ​ Even the foundation is treated as a decorative element: the stones of the front elevation are smooth-cut around the edges and rock-cut in the centers. ​ The survival of the house is remarkable considering its proximity to a gravel pit at the rear. Located on Burlington Pike in [[Belleview]],​ the Clore House was constructed in the 1890s. ​ It is compact in form, with a tall, narrow facade dominated by a two-story semi-octagonal bay.  The front gable is faced with tongue-and-groove siding, and a small, hipped-roof porch shelters the entrance. ​ Even the foundation is treated as a decorative element: the stones of the front elevation are smooth-cut around the edges and rock-cut in the centers. ​ The survival of the house is remarkable considering its proximity to a gravel pit at the rear.
