This is the most sophisticated bungalow design in the district. The house displays a tapestry brick up to the sills, shingled dormers and a very broad overhang accentuating the horizontal. The craftsman/bungalow house, introduced in the early 1900s by magazines like House Beautiful, Good Housekeeping, and Ladies' Home Journal, and architectural pattern books, gained widespread popularity from 1905 to the 1930s. The style was developed and refined around the turn-of-the-century by California architects, and brothers, Charles Sumner Greene and Henry Mather Greene. The Greenes were influenced by the English Arts and Crafts movement, and oriental building techniques and aesthetics. Whereas the Greenes designed "high-style" two-story craftsman bungalows in California, in Saint Paul, as in most of the country, the style is expressed in the more modest one-story vernacular bungalow.
