This architecturally notable home is described as a “stick style” Victorian in Here Today: San Francisco’s Architectural Heritage. It is a late-19th Century American architectural term describing the overlaying of board strips on exterior construction to mimic half-timbered framing with modest, decorative motifs, in contrast to the earlier highly decorated “Italianate “ style.
