The exuberant complexity of massing of this Stick Style house is matched in its detailing. Cross-gabled with steep gables projecting from gables, and polygonal bays projecting from side gables, the house is further enlivened by a spidery porch wrapping its front. Its neighbor, the Campbell House (621 Peaks Street), is a simpler version of Stick Style.
