Darling Residence craftsman-exterior

Darling Residence

The Darling-Wright Residence is one of the first houses Charles and Henry Greene were commissioned to create outside Pasadena, their first project published abroad, and a significant turning point in the evolution of the Greene & Greene design aesthetic that would lead to the world-renowned Gamble and Blacker houses.

This exterior color looks like it may be a pre stained ceder shake shingle product by Shakertown in "Pasadena Green" color

Sarah Phipps Design added this to Clues to Your Home's Architectural History
CraftsmanThe Craftsman style was mastered by brothers Charles and Henry Greene, who created masterpieces like this one — the Darling-Wright residence. The brothers had an appreciation of Japanese and Swiss architecture and used wood in amazing ways. Their work started the move toward modernism in architecture.
