This National Historic Landmark is the quintessential American Arts & Crafts style bungalow. It exhibits all of the hallmarks of the international Arts & Crafts movement, which prized traditional materials and a handcrafted look over the perceived sterility of industrial age design. Outside, the structure is defined by low-pitched gabled roofs and deep eaves with exposed rafters.
Interiors are dominated by deeply hued woodwork with sophisticated joinery. Many areas of the house offer transitional zones between indoors and outdoors, making it responsive to the southern California climate.
