Parapeted gables with scrolls, bell gables, mission revival

Since my Cape Dutch and Dutch gable epiphany I've been searching. Here are scrolls on a mission revival parapet - if that's the term - on the edge of Druid Hills. If you find this one, slow down or you'll miss much high-styled detail.

Awnings, urns, tile, blind arches, lanterns, curved walls - wow!

The shady north facade with lamp post, arches and walk. Yummy.

A few Atlanta neighborhoods have tiny pockets of mission or Mediterranean eclectic houses. This one is across the street from the scrolled gables. Very dignified but inviting. The "garden growing wild" over grows the walk. Please keep the edger away.

Lot's of curvy details in this Morningside mission near Ansley Mall. There is a cartouche in the gable and another great awning, this time with tile.

Next door we have a bell gable. Good grief there is a Cinquefoil, and serpintine columns.

What is a bell gable? Head over to Virginia-Highlands' Church of Our Saviour to see.

We see Dutch / parapeted gables in new construction. This one is in the Old Fourth Ward west of Atlanta medical center.

You'll never see these houses unless you live in in the neighborhood. Architecture tourists - keep your eyes peeled.
