Designed by Jerome Robert Cerny, a noted architect of residential estate homes in the Chicago area, and constructed by local builder John F. Danielson, this house is a rare example of the Norman French style in Raleigh. The residence is clad in Wake County granite and features a distinctive multicolored slate roof.

Williams and his wife, Annie Laurie Snow Williams, the house and gardens have been well preserved and retain a high degree of original material. Private residence.
