The charm of this petite stone cottage in Gothic style often inspires visitors to imagine it as a fairy tale setting. The use of stone for a residence of this scale is very unusual. Donald Cattanach was a mason, and it is believed that he designed the house and did the masonry construction himself. The front window stonework is especially notable. Other stylistic features include: • multiple front gables, a common Gothic style expression • Gothic quatrefoil detail above porch • polychrome detail above second floor window • round bullseye window in gable above door

The cottage is now designated as a Minneapolis Historic Landmark.
