Historical Summary:

Constructed in 1917, this one-story Craftsman bungalow, is located on the west side of North Vista Street and oriented east. The building, rectangular in plan, features a gable roof with composition shingles and exposed rafter tails. The main elevation is clad with horizontal wood siding. A porch with a gabled roof and gable motif extends across the main facade, supported by squared piers and a brick-clad rail. Two wood, single-pane fixed sash windows flank the main entrance which contains a slab door with multiple lights. The Craftsman style was extremely popular in Southern California residential architecture from 1910 to the mid-1920s, with its zenith in the 1910s. The Arts & Crafts movement, of which Craftsman style architecture was a part, represents the first popular wave of modernist influence in American architecture. Although distinctly a modern--that is, ahistorical--style, the underpinnings of the style are founded on a rejection of the industrial and an embrace of the handcrafted.
