Architect George Washington Smith became one of the preeminent practitioners of the interpretive Hispanic architectural revival movement.  Smith’s Spanish Colonial Revival signature was the picturesque simplicity of his use of extensive plain wall surfaces, arches, clay tile roofs, iron grille work, heavy wood components, and deeply recessed wall openings, among other elements. This estate is distict from Smith’s other French Normandy homes because of it’s radically asymeterical main facade containing an unbalanced window plan, and extensive areas of uninterrupted stucco.  George Washington Smith created only a handful of French Normandy homes.
