This two-dormer cape with attached one-car garage has been enlarged and the entry and dormer added. The original steep-roofed cape is apparent on the south side of the building. Unionville builders Frank Johnson and Ralph Carpenter constructed the house in 1950. It was enlarged in 1984-85 with additions designed by T.J. Crockett III. The front entry and dormers were designed by Mr. Crockett after one of the oldest capes in Connecticut (Norfolk) and built in 1996-97. The house was built by and has been continuously occupied by the Crockett family. Thomas J. Crockett Jr., a civic leader and realtor, was one of the two founders of the Lovely Heights Development Corporation, which mapped out the neighborhood, named the streets and sold house lots. His son, Thomas J. Crockett III, a diplomat and historian, occupies the house.

The house at 11 Progress Street is architecturally significant as a mid-20th century Cape Cod-style, typical of many built in Unionville after World War II. The house is historically significant for its association with Thomas J. Crockett, Jr., one of the founders of the Lovely Heights Development Corporation in the 1920's. Crockett, with his partner, Maurice Foley, laid out the house lots and streets in this section of Unionville as a planned neighborhood.
