Royal C. Taft commissioned Stone, Carpenter & Willson for the design of this house for his daughter and her husband. This tightly massed house on a high terraced site is a fine example of the transition from Queen Anne to Colonial Revival that this firm designed so well: the playful flirtations between symmetry and asymmetry look to Queen Anne, while the decorative vocabulary is “Colonial” that is, it embraces motifs in fashion from the mid-eighteenth to the early nineteenth centuries.
