Architectural Historian/Sleuth John G. Ripley offers some interesting details about the architect, ‘George Costerisan worked in partnership with architectural designer Frank Kavanaugh from about 1912 until 1915. Census data between 1910 and 1930 indicate that George lived around the corner from the Maltman house at 1410 Edgecliffe. It is likely that he also designed the Edgecliffe house, but that would need to be checked out. The assessor’s date is 1906, but any assessor’s date before 1915 is not necessarily very accurate.’
