This is the flagship residence of Lamerton Terrace, a 40-acre tract of land developed by Dr. W. E. Lamerton during the 1930s to 1950s. The home was designed by architect, John Duncan Forsyth and was constructed in 1929-1930.
The architectural style is Tudor Revival. This two-story home is constructed using multiple colors and textures, with red brick and occasional black bricks for design, and limestone, which makes for a lovely design. The Tudor styling includes steeply pitched side gabled roof, a similar cross-gabled facade, tall chimneys, cut stone lintels, door surround and quoins. There are Tudor arches and semicircular doors and colonnades. Casement windows set in groups or strips with multiple diamond-shaped leaded lights adds to the Tudor look. The roof is wood shingled.
Typical of Tudor Revival construction, there is an "end porch" which connects the main house with the 1-1/2 story three-bay garage. Viewing the home from the west, the three massive upwardly stepped gables are distinctively stylish. The home was placed on the National Register in 1997.
