Petree House featured in Home Tour

August 19, 2014 Posted by Franklin Maggi

We had the opportunity about 5 years ago to prepare the landmark nomination for the Wolfe & McKenzie designed, 1903 Petree House, located at 102 S. 12th St. in San Jose’s Naglee Park. A prototypical house to be promoted in their 107 plan book 102 Designs, Frank Delos Wolfe and Charles McKenzie designed this 24 foot wide two story house to fit on a small lot and yet have four bedrooms. Dining took place in the centrally located living room, and the front parlor served as a small 11′ x 14′ social space.

Our clients, Seamus and Jennifer Turner, have lovingly restored their house, which is now under a Mills Act contract with the City of San Jose to insure long-term maintenance by redirection of some of the property tax assessment back to the owners. Their house are featured in this article by Mary Gottschalk about the Home Tour this Saturday, August 23, 2014.
