Mason-Stegall House – Ridglea

Well suited to its corner site, this irregular V-plan house has receding wings which enclose a garden to the rear. The dwelling is a successful combination of Colonial Revival and Ranch styles. A one and one-half story saltbox, clad in shingles, the house features a framed overhang with pendants to form a cutaway entry porch. Spreading out from the main entry block are low, one-story wings clad in stone and stucco which incorporate servants’ quarters and garage. E. Gilbert Mason, a decorator, owned and resided at the property prior to 1944, and may be responsible for the architectural design. Marion A. and Eugene T. Stegall, a dentist, occupied the house from 1944 to 1955. The dwelling may be eligible for the National Register for its design.
