Significance: The house, which had an attached carriage house and stable, was one of the most handsomely designed and impressive residences in all Cambridge. The garden, which measured approximately 210' x 510', was unusually large for its neighborhood and was substantially unaltered from its original plan. House and grounds together comprised a particularly fine intact example of an outstanding mid-nineteenth-century Cambridge suburban estate.
