Plans, elevations, sections and details. The basement plan includes locations of sewage pipes. New two-storey house with basement and garage (1911) and later additions (1923). The basement includes a servant's room, laundry room, fuel bin, water closet and workshop. The ground floor consists of a vestibule with adjoining lavatory, hall, study, drawing room, dining room, kitchen, pantry and larder. On this level a porte cochere and porch join the vestibule, and two verandas face the sea. A hall, five bedrooms, dressing room, linen room, bathroom and loggia comprise the second room. The house is of wood-frame construction faced with stone. The two-bay garage includes a servant's room. Later drawings call for the addition of a living hall next to the main entrance on the ground floor and a conservatory on one of the rear verandas.
