Historic Profile: The Garlick-Magney House is a uniquely urban example of the English Medieval Cottage style of architecture. Constructed in 1922, the two story residence is an excellent example of how architectural images from the past were extensively employed during the 1920s and 1930s in Minneapolis. A set of garden walls delineating the property boundaries, the steeply pitched cross gable roof, low massing, casement windows, and whitewashed clinker brick are all characteristic of the Cottage style. During the planning and construction of the house, architect Gottileb Magney and Gertrude Garlick met. They married in 1924 and their family stayed in the home until 1983.
