This pleasant English-style cottage home was open for inspection by the builders/designers and general contractors, Lane and Goes, on May 1, 1927. The house design includes components of Craftsman, Colonial Revival, and Mission styles. The English plank front door with triangular pediment above the round arched doorway is notable, as is the wide eave overhang, boxed with brackets, an element sometimes found in Mission style homes. Pedimental dormers are common elements of the Colonial Revival style. The front view of the house reveals the wing and the deck extension on the north side, which the present owner added.

Builder Clifford “Tip” Goes, class of 1914, a former trustee of Syracuse University and one of its most prominent alumni, was also a coxswain for the S.U. Crew Team and in 1955 he created the Goes Cup, a prestigious trophy given to the winner of the annual race between Syracuse, Cornell and Navy. When Goes formed his Contracting Company, Joseph Lane worked with him.
