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