The House at 483 Summer Avenue in Reading, Massachusetts, USA, is a modestly decorated vernacular Federal style cottage. The 1-1/2 story wood frame house was built c. 1830, late for a Federal style building. Its significant Federal features are its five-bay facade, side-gable roof, and the door surround, which has pilasters supporting a tall entablature with a projecting cornice. The house is finished in wooden clapboards, and has two gabled dormers projecting from the front roof.[2]

The house was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1984.[1]
