Well screened from the street by its lush landscaping, the Williamson House recalls the ranch-style work of Californian William Wurster in its forms and choice of materials. The two-story central section serves as the core from which radiate a series of one-story shed-roofed wings. The use of board-and-batten siding, Mexican brick for the chimneys, and flat tiles on the roofs gives it a regional feel, but in a contemporary form.
