In these two variations on the two-story gambrel roof, Hoppin, Read & Hoppin’s Waldron House (9 Stimson Avenue) is actually the more conservative of the two, despite its elaborate composition, for it looks back to the contrapuntal massing of 1880s Queen Anne houses. Stone, Carpenter & Willson’s [Dart House] is more compact and contained, a foreshadowing of the full-blown Colonial Revival of the later 1890s and after.
