Victorian cast-iron fence; significant brick outbuilding to the rear."--National Register of Historic Places inventory listing
I don't know much about this house, but I think it's beautiful. It's located in the Old Neighborhoods District about a block and a half to the west of mine. The pretty yard and the landscaping really set off the crisp white paint and green shutters of the house, and I love the bunting they put up. Originally this house was probably unpainted brick and would have had a smaller porch that covered just the front door, in keeping with the Greek Revival style; however, I don't think the paint or the porch detracts from this house at all. Can't you just see yourself enjoying a cold glass of lemonade while sitting in one of the wicker chairs on the front porch?
