Short Physical Description:
This one-story building contains two living units, each with a garage. The building is split-faced pumice brick, built on a concrete foundation. The original composition roof has been replaced by a metal roof. Original colored porcelain panels on the facades have been replaced with wood shingles.
Long Physical Description:
This buillding faces in a southerly direction. A double driveway approaches the center of the building with garages flanked by the two residences. Designed to house permanent employees, it is now used for park offices. It was designed utilizing standard Mission 66 two-bedroom plans. The living units are mirrored. Originally the front facades featured two fixed pane windows flanked by paired casement windows, but they have been replaced by two fixed/single casement windows. Two of the original window units at the rear of the house have also been replaced, but the rest of the windows are original. The units have entry doors front and rear, and a third door at the back of the garage.
