In the early years of the 20th century, as a reaction to the excess ornamentation of the Victorian-era architecture, the Craftsman style came into vogue. Craftsman houses have low-pitched gable roofs and wide eave overhangs, with visible rafters and decorative bracing. Wide front porches, supported by wood posts resting on wood or masonry piers are typical of this style house. Large windows, wood siding and detailed attic vents are also typical. This c. 1915 house contains these typical details, adding the embellishment of telescoping front gables, a transom and sidelights at the front entry. Wide front steps provide entry to the welcoming front porch. Interior and exterior details speak of the Craftsman philosophy of design, which exposes the framing and support of the building, and in its simplicity, celebrates the workmanship of an earlier era.
