A Cottage of Consequence
This 1938 residence was erected in what was then still a sparsely settled part of Heathwood. Though a cottage in form, this Tudor style property is of a larger scale and made of a far more expensive material than most of its counterparts in nearby suburbs. Incorporating both pink stone from Virginia and native stone, the pre-World War II dwelling conveys a sense of permanency and stability during a time in which most Americans still wrestled with the economic fallout of the Great Depression. Further notable details include ornate chimney pots and wooden gable ornamentation.
