The Davis Residence, built in 1921, sits on an 11,000 square foot lot that slopes rather steeply downward from Mohala Way towards Armstrong Street. The residence is not a high style house; one which contains clearly defining architectural elements that facilitate the categorization of the house into a distinct style but rather, it is representative of a modest Vernacular Craftsman Bungalow. The house maintains elements common to bungalows such as the horizontal emphasis, one story height, clapboard cladding, flared walls, exposed eave rafters, gently pitched roof and windows with rectangular multi-paned upper sashes over single lights. The house is characteristic of a higher end Lewers & Cooke type house designed for a family of moderate income.
