223 West Agarita Avenue

Designed in 1914 by Atlee B. Ayres, this home is a distinctive interpretation of the Arts and Crafts style popular in the first two decades of the twentieth century. Narrow horizontal siding forms a continuous “skin”, as in the Shingle Style, and broad horizontal openings and widely-spaced piers reference the Prairie Style of the Midwest.

Distinctive floor designs in the home are the millwork of longtime building materials company Steves and Sons, and are believed to have been a house warming gift to Marshall W. Terrell and his bride Agnes Bell Terrell by her parents, Samuel C. Bell and Agnes Tobin Bell. The magnificent centuries-old oak is a local landmark. The original owner, Marshall W. Terrell was an attorney at the law firm where one of the current homeowners is currently employed.
