Architectural Style

Minimal Traditional

This home’s architectural style is difficult to classify. The term “Minimal Traditional” is sometimes used for a large group of straightforward modern homes with minimal exterior decoration. The home’s low profile and overhanging roof might hint at a Prairie style influence. The broad brick chimney on the south elevation, if original, evokes both Prairie and Frank Lloyd Wright styles. The distinctive narrow vertical windows along the south elevation, which may also not be original, evoke the more contemporary Midcentury Modern movement. The retaining wall and the deck at the rear are late twentieth-century additions.
