    Significance: This intricately articulated Craftsman bungalow, noteworthy for the high quality of its design, serves as a handsome visual counterpoint to the more simply designed structures on the block; it is one-and-a-half stories and rectangular in shape, topped by a broad gable roof surfaced with barrel-shaped tiles ranging in hue from pink to a soft green; projecting through the roof, in the center of the front facade, is a broad gabled dormer with a similarly tiled roof; deep wood brackets support each gable, and a broad wood strut ties together the gable ends; the building is brown clapboard up to a string course just above the first-floor windows; above that, it is white stucco; half-timbering articulates the gable ends; there is a broad brick chimney; windows are multi-paned and grouped in ribbon-like configurations; the glass front porch, with floor-to-ceiling windows is accessed by the main entrance located at the side of the house; the windows are topped by projecting wood rafters and the front door has a shallow-tiled gable roof supported by brackets. A geometrically designed balustrade borders the front stairs; similar geometric detailing is found in the corner posts of a projecting pergola-like front porch.

    Historic Features: Dormer with brackets on west elevation; chimney stack near ridgeline; bay windows on north elevation.
