The most exuberant of Buchanan's several Craftsman bungalows, this one-and-a-half-story brick house has low-pitched gables with deep eaves supported on curvilinear brackets, grouped windows, and a front porch resting on brick piers and enclosed with low, solid-brick walls. The false tile roof of pressed metal has a pagoda-like flare.
