This Jacobean-revival dwelling is little altered today from the first decade of the
20th century. The most dramatic change is that now the house is nestled in a bower
of trees whereas here the open landscape affords wonderful glimpses of the barns
and carriage houses for neighboring estates. The front porch has been removed. The
contractor William J. Patterson whoconstructed this house and many others pictured
in this exhibition was a later owner of 8801 Crefeld Street.
