The McKeage House is locally significant under Criterion C in the Area of Architecture as an excellent example of an Art Modeme style house. The building features an asymmetrical design with a smooth stucco finish accented by horizontal banding. Other defining elements include the flat roof, curved comers, the curved garden wall, comer windows, and a glass block curved comer window. The primary entrance is especially noteworthy with the slab door with a porthole framed by curved fluting and sidelights and shielded by a curved cantilevered overhang. The Art Modeme style is carried over into the interior of the residence with a fireplace designed to mimic the main entrance, a metal staircase balustrade with a horizontal emphasis, curved walls, distinctive stepped room openings and stepped recessed ceilings.
