The house at 6799 Worsham Drive was built in 1926 and is known as the Stoody Home. The Spanish Colonial Revival home combines picturesque massing, thick stuccoed walls, tiled roofs and a sparing use of classical detail. These features are present on all sides of the house. The character defining feature of this home is a two story tower that projects a full story above the rest of the house. The second story of the tower serves as an observatory complete with a roof that spins 360° and a roof hatch that opens to the sky.
The interior of the house also incorporates many classic features consistent with the original period and style. Some of the most striking examples include the spindled arches in the foyer and the built in cabinets in the breakfast nook and kitchen. Many complimentary elements are also found throughout the property including the original front yard wall, wrought iron front gate, and flagstone walkways.
Local designation date is December 18, 2001.
