Historic Designations:

Historic Commission Description: Prairie Style Residence, c1925;A Prairie/Bungalow set back on a large lot describes this structure in the Palm Haven district of Willow Glen. In this particular example of the Prairie Style the characteristic horizontal massing, extended eaves, extended roof rafters, and massive rectangular shapes (such as the porch supports) can be found. Window forms also echo the plain geometry of the rectangle and the square. This residence is further distinguished because of its two over-sized entry porches that are set perpendicular to each other. The house is also very well maintained and the landscaping, in keeping with the entire Palm Haven neighborhood as a whole, is verdant and manicured. There are no apparent exterior alterations to this residence.
