A stark white color scheme emphasizes the rustic detailing of this Tucson Pueblo Revival home dating from the late Twenties.  Roughhewn wooden lintels spanning the window and door openings are once again a consistent feature, as are the false vigas or beams projecting from the cornice line.  The meandering line of the roof parapet enlivens the home’s silhouette, subtly suggesting the multiple terraces seen in Pueblo architecture.  The balcony rail and the brackets supporting the cantilever are quite theatrically fashioned from tree branches stripped of bark.  A striking though strictly twentieth-century detail is the enormous window lighting the two-story living room; to the left of it, an unusual lean-to wing wall screens the side yard.  Curving landscape walls integrated with the structure and a driveway of decomposed granite complete the picturesque composition.
