Resource Description:
This one-story house is an example of the Vernacular Hipped Cottage subtype. It has a rectangular plan and a bell-shaped roof with a central dormer and deep eaves with exposed rafters. A polygonal bay, with one window that has been replaced with a door, projects from the east elevation. The recessed full-width front porch has low solid walls clad in narrow exposure wood lap siding with mitered ends to match the house rather than opening railings. The house has a composition shingle roof, an Arroyo stone foundation, wood double-hung windows and an original wood-paneled front door with a rectangular light. The front yard, which is slightly elevation from the street by a concrete curb is enclosed by a chain link fence and has a Hollywood driveway at the eastern end. Although the house was built two years after the end of the period of significance cited in the Multiple Property Documentation Form, it is consistent with the Vernacular Hipped Cottage subtype and exhibits elements of the influence of the emerging Arts and Crafts movement in its solid porch walls, extended eaves and square-ends rafters.
