Map This Location


This one-and-one-half-story, stucco-sided Spanish Eclectic style residence was the home of Isaac and Ella Markson. Isaac was president of Markson Bros, a furniture company. The house has a cross-gable roof, covered with straight- barrel Mission tiles and features rounded arched openings with multi-pane casement windows. The recessed main entrance is located under the slope of the cross gable roof and features an elaborate low-relief door surround with turned pilasters. The detached two-car garage was built in the same style.
