Statement of significance: 
This is the only example of residential Italian Renaissance architecture in Pendleton. Characteristic elements of the style include the low pitched hipped roof, the decorative rafter ends simulating eave brackets, multi-pane casement, double-hung and fixed windows, round arched door opening, balustrade over door, segmentally arched window openings on sun porch and end wall chimney. Two atypical details of particular note are the shingled rather than tiled roof and the large single-pane fixed windows in the front facade. The four-over-one windows with multi-pane casements on either side seem to be borrowed from the prolific Craftsman style. The deed from Mr. Tannlers purchase of this land in 1922 included a promise that a modern house would be constructed on the site beginning November 1, 1923.
