The British Arts and Crafts Victorian style of architecture can be described as a blend of the architectural stylistic features of the well known craftsman style bungalow with the features of Victorian style homes. This blending of styles results in a unique architectural design. The Victorian elements are in the small front porch with decorative railings, wooden columns and the side bay window.

The craftsman features of this outstanding example of Victorian homes in Pacific Grove may be discovered in its craftsman style windows, decorative beams under the gables and the natural elements of the stone work in the exterior gateway and patio.

The interior of this stunning style of Victoriana reveals built-ins in many of the rooms so characteristic of the Arts and Crafts architectural style. The charms of the Victorian design are also prevalent in the interior. Though there have been modern conveniences applied to the kitchen and bath areas in particular, the home’s interior retains its authentic Victorian era sensibilities without the dark atmosphere found so frequently in homes of this period. Built in 1908, the home remains a light, bright, shining example of the Victorian era of design.
