”711 California Street, Howe House, Stick, Late 1880s
This Stick style house is a vernacular Victorian‐era residence from the late nineteenth century; it appears to have been built over time, with smaller and larger gabled volumes. The classic Stick style details of the front portion of the one‐and‐one‐half‐story portion of the residence include the fish‐scale shingles in the front gable end, the one‐story projecting angled bay window with its three equal 2/2 double‐hung windows, the dormers on the side elevations, the channel‐rustic siding, and simple inset front porch (which has been partially enclosed). The early owner was Arden Hall, a carpenter who came to Santa Cruz
