This house is significant as an example of the Craftsman style houses erected in Colorado Springs during the early twentieth century. Notable features of the house include the gabled roof with overhanging eaves and triangular knee braces, large gabled dormers with triangular knee braces, multi-/single-light double-hung sash windows with slanted surrounds, shingled walls and brick foundation, and gabled porch with triangular knee braces, multiple tapered columns atop brick piers, and solid balustrade with stone trim.
The 1911 house has undergone alterations, including extension of the porch and addition of a porte cochere. The house is associated with John Garrett, an early member of the AdAmAn Club and a nationally famous marksman. Locally significant.
