Situated on a hillside above Sunset Drive, the Smith House has front, side, and rear stone retaining walls and a long flight of stone steps leading from the corner of the yard to the front porch. The house is a one-and-a-half-story stuccoed bungalow with multiple broad gables on the main roof, dormers, projecting bays, and front porch. The off-center front porch features groups of tapered wood posts set on stuccoed plinths with a plain balustrade.


William C. Smith, an accountant with RJR Tobacco Company, built the house between 1920 and 1925. He and his wife, Treva, occupied it until the early 1950’s.
