This residence is significant as an excellent example of Foursquare architectural style, which along with Neoclassical and Shingle, is a common Transition style in southern California. Transitional styles represent the transition from the Victorian-era styles of the late 1800s to the Craftsman styles of the early 1900s and often individual buildings will incorporate less elaborate elements of styles.
