Ventura County Historical Landmark Statement of Significance:
Faulkner House, built 1894-95. Designated August 1968. National Register No. 91000485 April 1991.
This house, on a modern working farm, is one of the finest examples of pure Queen Anne style in southern California. It has a three-story octagonal tower, irregular roof line, projecting gables, gracefully curved porch, and ornate stained-glass windows; front door contains more than 500 pieces of beveled, etched glass set in copper; upstairs library is crowned by a domed ceiling with a stained-glass skylight. The house was wired for electricity and piped for plumbing when it was built, years before those services were generally available. Other modern features were a dumbwaiter from basement to kitchen for delivery of firewood; a roll-top desk built into living room wall; and a built-in speaking tube system, complete with bells. Architects: Herman Anlauf and F. P. Ward (local).
