This whimsical, front-gabled Swiss Chalet bungalow is one of several excellent Craftsman-type houses in Cheboygan and Rogers City. Inspired by the work of the Greene brothers in California and the English Arts and Crafts movement and publicized throughout this country by magazines such as House Beautiful and Good Housekeeping, these modest, low buildings with broad proportions, overhanging eaves, and exposed roof supports were found in the far reaches of Michigan in the first two decades of the twentieth century. They display many different secondary influences, as exemplified in the bungalow nearby at 120 Ball Street.
Alpine details appear in the steep gable roof and dormers and the Swiss bracketed balcony above the entrance. The wide, overhanging eaves are supported by decorative knee braces and the rafter ends are left exposed. Small square blocks on the bargeboards and the frieze simulate exposed purlins and joists. The gable ends are decorated with false half timbering while the lower walls are clapboard. Cobblestone steps and shamrock detailing on the balcony add to its delightful character.
