The Bristow House (c. 1926)

The Bristow House, a Mediterranean-influenced bungalow at 1901 Fairfax Avenue, was originally the home and office of a local doctor.
Built of orange-buff brick, the house has a hipped roof, broken by half-facade projections. These parapets reflect the irregular and informal roof forms of varying heights seen in Spanish Eclectic houses of the period. Red, Spanish tiles cover the roof.
The home is fronted by a generous terrace and sets of French doors under transoms.
Other notable details include six-over-six windows, a side-end exposed chimney set into a parapet, and large arch with stucco and mosaic in the front terrace wall.
