    Significance: Designed by an important architect and Evanstonian, this stucco residence places a French tiled hipped roof above a high, two-storied rectangular mass which has a distinct frontality and centrality, central entrance is defined by a pair of piers enriched with delicate lattice work and having a hipped roof spill out from below their top, piers rise to a timber belt course at the base of the second story where multi-light windows are variously grouped in the irregularly spaced vertical boards crossing the façade, upper story windows are repeated twice below on the east half of the facade, once immediately below the string course, and again immediately atop the distinct mudsill, on the western half, only a single pair of windows, each larger than any others, appears on the lower floor. In the western hip near the roof ridge is a chimney; a flat-fronted projection is centered on the lower story of the opposite end. The building has excellent integrity, and it is listed on the State Survey.

    Historic Features: Rectangular portico, wood trim, timbering and horizontal bands.
