    Significance: Solid structure typical of the traditional styles during the active period of construction during which it was produced; the deep, thin structure has yellow face brick only across the front facade; floor level stands well above the ground; most of the front is occupied by a canted-corner, glazed solarium with battered engaged buttresses at the angles; between the buttresses are arched windows, their art glass producing a needed delicacy of scale; the center window is twice the width of the others and beneath a segmental arch with a central mullion; arches are punctuated with brick-sized stone, the same material used for spring-and-keystones and for corbels below the stone sill; the solarium is covered with a low hipped roof which has a gabled dormer with boxed eaves rising beyond its peak; the east slope of this hipped roof extends back unbroken, while the west slope is broken to meet the front slope of the next hip; here the ridge is higher and to the west of the other ridge in order that the roof may cover the main block; this mass is sufficiently wider than the solarium to accommodate an arched entrance, its stair podium anchored by an urn; beyond the front, facing west, is a dormer, this one with a hipped roof.

    Historic Features: Flower boxes with brackets, polygonal sun room bay with flared piers; arched windows with transom fanlights, wide roof eaves; gable dormer on north elevation.

    Historic Info: Source: Evanston History Center Archives (3-ring binder) STATEMENT OF SIGNIFICANCE: A7 This stolid structure is typical of the independence of interpretation of traditional styles during the active period of construction during which it was produced. The deep, thin structure has yellow face brick only across the front facade. The floor level stands well above ground. Most of the front is occupied by a canted-corner, glazed solarium with battered engaged buttresses at the angles. Between the buttresses are arched windows, their art glass producing a needed delicacy of scale. The center window is twice the width of the others and beneath a segmental arch with a central mullion. The arches are punctuated with brick-sized stone, the same material used for spring-and-keystones and for corbels below the stone sill. The solarium is covered with a low hipped roof which has a gabled dormer with boxed eaves rising beyond its peak. The east slope of this hipped roof extends back unbroken, while the west slope is broken to meet the front slope of the next hip. Here the ridge is higher and to the west of the other ridge in order that the roof may cover the main block. This mass is sufficiently wider than the solarium to accommodate an arched entrance, its stair podium anchored by an urn. Beyond the front, facing west, is a dormer, this one with a hipped roof. The building has very good integrity.
