It will be interesting (to me) to learn the history of this house. If it was built c. 1900, it wouldn't have been old when Stickley inhabited it. The interior photos
show a Stickley-designed environment; the exterior, not so much. Houses shown in Stickley's publications are Craft architect-inspired buildings without
classical adornments; they tend to be half-timbered or shingled, narrowly avoiding thatched roofs. The Craftsman bungalow is the prototypical Stickley abode.

"Stickley bought the home in 1900 and rebuilt the interior in 1902 following a fire." The house was designed by Wellington Tabor.
