Unlike the Tuck House designed by Ward Wellington Ward on the Corner of Concord Place, this house is designed in full Arts & Crafts mode with a strong hint of the English vernacular. Ward brought to this relatively small house some the same sense of sprawling grandeur he employed in contemporary houses for richer clients outside the city. The fact that the house sit on a rise gives it stature its otherwise low profile lacks, and this verticality balances the otherwise mostly horizontal lines of the design.
