This lovely Arts & Crafts style house has had few owners, and the most recent have returned it to its original open and flowing appearance.

Lamont Warner, the architect, was a creative young designer who worked for Gustav Stickley in the early years of the Craftsman movement. Here, Warner created a house that is essentially horizontal in feel but marked with enough detail to enliven its profile and every surface, and to create an undulating form. One can easily see here that the individuality of many Arts & Crafts style houses is often rooted in the variegated forms of the Queen Anne style, though the Arts & Crafts Movement preferred lower heights, broader forms and a more restrained palette.

This house sits beautifully on its corner lot and new gardens have been planted. It fits in nicely on Allen Street where several other uniquely designed Arts & Crafts houses are situated on corner lots.
