The original ranch home was destroyed by a fire in 1999. The new home was rebuilt utilizing scissor trusses with slightly higher exterior walls. These moves keep the intimate scale of the neighborhood and create an elevated feeling within the interior spaces. White painted beams and finely crafted detailing give the house a charming feeling that exemplifies the classic ranch home. Board and batten siding and single hung windows give the house a cottage feeling. A generous west facing patio offers shade to the west side of the house. A pergola and rail fence offer a transition to the nearby street. A front patio was developed extending the front porch and living area to the front yard and connecting the house to the street life. A Split Cedar shake roof provides a thermally insulated covering to the home and ties into the historic roots of the Arcadia Neighborhood.
