Situated in the center of three lots and enclosed by a massive rough-faced limestone wall, this flat-roofed Moderne house is a striking addition to its residential neighborhood. With sweeping curves the house's stucco finish is dramatically accented with a wide stone band. Rectangular grouped casement windows contrast with the rounded corner's banded windows below a curved canopy. A stone stringcourse runs along the coping of the wall, and a rough stone ramp leads to the steps in front of the house's hidden entrance.
More traditional and typical of the neighborhood is the Colonial Revival house (1933) at 438 Ott. It has a balconied Doric portico, a Palladian window centered on the second story, and a gabled slate roof with three pedimented dormers.
