Note:
One of several two-story Colonial Revival houses planned by Embury, it has a compact plan described by Whitehead in Architectural Record, June 1924, as a "miracle of economy. To get five large bedrooms, three baths, and ample closets on a floor of this size is a triumph of planning, and it will be found if the plans are studied that all rooms are corner rooms or have cross drafts, and that in all the principal rooms symmetry has been maintained with the utmost care, and yet with an appearance of ease that every architect knows to be deceptive."
