c. 1928. 602 N. Thorington St.

A one-and-a-half-story living room projects from a corner of the main body of the house at a 45-degree angle. The roof of the living room wing is carried so low to the ground that the windows are treated as wall dormers. The lower portion of the house is sheathed in red brick, and the upper section is half-timbered. Situated on the entrance terrace is a wood bench reminiscent of the designs of the turn-of-the-century English Arts and Crafts architect Charles F. A. Voysey.
