Drake Drive – Montclair Highlands

In 1937 Frederick L. Confer designed a “modernistic’ (now art deco) home for Mr. and Mrs. George H. Everest and their two daughters. The Everest family had been living at 1760 Mountain Blvd before moving into their new Montclair Highlands home at 1831 Drake Drive.

The home was developed by Emge and Stockman. It was built by James H. Anderson, who has worked with the architect before.
