This house is important for its form and mass and for the information it provides about South Park's history. One of the community's mansions, it originally dominated four lots at this pivotal corner and included a greenhouse and garage.
Although altered, this house is illustrative of the ambitious Queen Anne style and retains its form as such. This is an unusual style/house form in South Park. It has a gable on hip roof, projecting two story bay to the east and an unusual bellcast porch roof. Windows are 1/1 double hung wooden sash. Fixed plate windows have been installed in place of original primary fa├žade windows and entrances have been added to convert the once single family residence to apparently four apartments. A Craftsman-like pebble foundation was added under the porch at some point - - and the original siding covered with asbestos shingles. This houseand its setting contribute to the historic streetscape.
