Architect: Bruce Knutson
Style: English Cottage Revival
The Josephs, who owned 5 Red Cedar Lane, sold the eastern part of their large lot, where this house was built. A timber frame surrounds the front door. The exterior surface of the house, called roughcast, is stucco with extra depth achieved by the inclusion of pea-sized stones (compare with the smoother stucco on 6 and 10 Red Cedar Lane).
Previously, the Josephs had a subterranean bomb shelter here. Tom Eisenstadt, who lived at 1 Red Cedar Lane says, “The bomb shelter was a large diameter cylinder of corrugated steel. It was accessed via a manhole style entrance down a ladder. My parents were rather unwillingly enlisted as half owners/funders of the project.”
