    This building is part of the residential development created by Russian émigré Benjamin Lefkowsky who purchased the Hagerman mansion and associated properties in the 1920's. Park Terrace and Zyder Zee Streets provide access to his development. Lefkowsky had studies art photography and drawing in St. Petersburg and Germany in the pre-World War I era, and left his native country prior to the Russian Revolution. Attracted to the Colorado Springs because of its climate, scenery and artistic advantages, he developed the area to capitalize on the views of the Monument Valley Park and the Front Range.

    This house was built around 1925 in the Mission Revival style, characterized by the shaped parapets, tile roofing, widely overhanging eaves and stuccoed walls. This example adds the small arched opening at the tips of the parapets, the windows set in arched insets on the parapet walls, and the decorative tile ornaments. Locally significant.
