Original architect: 
Scott Streightiff

When faced with the opportunity to construct a new home on a vacant corner lot in an established neighborhood at the intersection of Rose Terrace and Griffith Road, the owners of this home knew they wanted a house that reflected the historic influences of architect Harrie Lindeberg. They hired Lake Forest architect Scott Streightiff, to create a handsome brick home with a country house feel and French influences. The scale of the house fits the surrounding neighborhood. The design is balanced and solid and serves to anchor the western end of Rose Terrace the way Stanley Anderson’s design at 307 Rose Terrace does at the east end of the same block.
