Washington Blvd., Westheight Manor


Dr. C. J. Sihler Residence
2000 Washington Boulevard
Victor J. DeFoe / DeFoe & Carroll, Architects
Built 1922-23

A two-story, Arts and Crafts bungalow, stucco on wood frame with stone veneer on its lower portions. With its one-story wings wrapped around the two-story center block to create a symmetrically balanced facade, capped by hipped tile roofs, there is a marked similarity to DeFoe's larger and more costly residence for Thomas M. Torson at 2300 Washington Boulevard. Nevertheless, the Sihler residence has its own special qualities, with the stone work extending to wall the front terrace and border the steps descending to one side of the broad front lawn. A basement garage is entered off of 20th Street. The entry area recessed between the one-story wings has possibly been altered, and may have originally had French doors or decorative trellis work.
