721 Kilbourne Road
Among the many large residences that front Kilbourne Road this modest cottage stands out. Though today integrated into this thoroughfare’s streetscape, the property originally was intended as a caretaker’s cottage for 21 Heathwood Circle. This “dependency,” or support building, appears to have remained a component of that larger property until about 1940, at which point it began being listed as a separate address in Columbia city directories. Architecturally, this comparatively modest home features minor Craftsman details that are found in some larger Heathwood residences and throughout other neighboring suburbs.
