Update: Check out James' Limestones and Boxwood 9-20-2010 blog post for some great pictures and info about this house.
n a 3-way face off between Phipps skyscrapers and Wieuca Road Baptist Church, this spectacular little house on the corner wins by a mile. Who designed and built this beauty? Who were the brick masons, the roofers, the metalworkers, the window builders?
It looks like it might have been there since the Revolution. I love the brick architrave / frieze.
Rustication, massive limestone lentils on the 2nd floor, pilasters, "X" themed windows and balcony, tile roof, stunning but elegant brickwork make an ordinary box into a landmark.
It's on a prominent corner in it's own little park. Go slowly and take it in.
A Girl Scout troop made a landscape guide.
It delights architecture tourists every time.
