This Queen Anne residence is noted for its fine oak woodwork and stained glass windows. In the more than five acres surrounding the building and multi-gabled carriage house, there are English-styled gardens and nature trails.

For those interested in gardens: The Lord and Schryver Conservancy, a community-based non-profit organization partnered with the Salem Parks Foundation and affliliated with Garden Conservancy, sponsors local garden projects to preserve and interpret the legacy of these two Salem landscape architects.
