301 Allen St, Wm J. McKee House
- Built: Unknown
- Architect: Ward Wellington Ward
This house is one of three designed by noted Arts & Crafts architect Ward Wellington Ward on this block of Allen Street. The William McKee house is little different from the Roy Carpenter House next door. It has a more unusual roof – but of a type familiar in other Ward houses. The roof begins as a hipped roof but as it rises it transitions into a side gable roof. Also the horizontal eaves on all sides of the houses are frequently broken by raised angled gable-like elements, filled beneath with vertical half-timber segments, giving a lively rhythm and texture to the house. Most of the exterior of the house is covered with a flat plaster surface, providing a modernist touch on this Arts & Crafts House.
