T. Patterson Ross, the architect of 21 Presidio Terrace, was considered a pioneer in the design of the Mission Revival style, a modern adaptation of the Spanish. Its façade is notable for the curlique parapets (espadanas) and quatrefoil windows, which are the hallmarks of this distinctive of this regional style.

The residence is one of 26 homes in the Presidio Terrace Circle carefully and colorfully documented in a wonderful historical picture book called The Historical Houses of Presidio Terrace—and the People Who Built Them”, written and photographed by Patrick McGrew, AIA, 1995.
