The article, detailing Palo Alto Stanford Heritage's House Tour for 1994, said of the Pettigrew House: "The house is pure Spanish Revival, from the red tile roofs to the wrought iron grillwork, truss-beam ceilings, tile floors, paved terrace and walled garden. Still known as the Pettigrew House, the house was built for businessman Perce Pettigrew. Although considered one of the finest examples of Spanish Revival architecture in the city, the house did not instantly engender affection among neighbors. Palo Alto City Council member Dr. Harry Reynolds, offended by the high walls, said he felt as if he had been 'slapped in the face every time' he saw the house. If there were any reasonable way in which an ordinance could be passed requiring an owner to have window in the front I would favor it," he said; article first printed in the Palo Alto Weekly, Friday Dec 2, 1994;"
