In these two variations on the two-story gambrel roof, Hoppin, Read & Hoppin’s Waldron House 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, 16 Stimson Avenue) is more compact and contained, a foreshadowing of the full-blown Colonial Revival of the later 1890s and after.
