Resource Description:
This one-and-one-half story house has elements of the Shingle Style subtype and the California Bungalow subtype described in the Multiple Property Documentation Form, “Residential Architecture of Pasadena, CA 1895-1918: Influence of the Arts and Crafts Movement.” It has a shallowly sloped gabled roof, oriented toward the street with two gabled dormers on the south elevation flanking a two-story flat-roofed polygonal bay. Gables have barge boards with a triangular detail at the ends and the primary gable has knee braces supporting the extended eaves and is clad in rectangular wood shingles. The first floor walls are clad in wide wood lap siding with mitered corners, as is the entire two-story bay. The full-width front porch has a hipped roof supported by square wood columns with classical capitals, diagonal bracket supports and a simple wood railing. The house has a composition shingle roof; an Arroyo stone foundation; wood and vinyl double-hung, fixed and transomed multi-light windows (simulated in the vinyl replacement sashes) in wood-framed openings; and an original wood paneled front door with a rectangular glass panel in a wood-framed opening. The front yard is level with the sidewalk and is surrounded by a chain-link fence.
