1000 Arnette Avenue

From the Durham Historic Inventory - 

It is possible that Durham contractor Tyson Crisp, who built the WL Whitted house at 1204 West Markham Avenue, a similar but more ambitious Spanish Revival style house, also was responsible for this one-story stucco on frame dwelling constructed in the late 1920s for Durham Dairy Products salesman Lester G. Martin. Diamond-shaped terra cotta tiles inlaid in the stucco veneer decorate the simple form marked by projections in the elevations and the roof-line. Arched doorways are contained in shallow wings or hoods roofed with terra cotta tile and an exterior chimney rises on the main facade. A popular neoclassical feature is recalled in the main facade with the main facade with the large window that emulates the Palladian motif.
