Spokane, Washington. 1930.  An exaggerated, massive front gable sweeps down to the ground with a red ceramic tile, catslide roof in this imposing cottage.  Red pressed brick veneer covers the exterior, and is set off by the fine, terra cotta front door surround.  The asymmetrical design and prominent chimney in the front emphasize the look of an old, English manor house.  The interior is as well preserved as the exterior, and features original woodwork, light fixtures, a wrought iron and mahogany balustrade, and details such as a telephone nook in the first floor hallway.  The house was reputedly designed by the first owners' son as a class assignment while in college back East at a prestigious university.
