|A beautiful home for sure. But can you spot something that doesn't look quite right?|
What is going on? This house is an example of how buildings can change through time. Sometime around 1910 this ca.1890 Queen Anne had a fire which destroyed the roof. Rather than rebuild the original roof, the owners built one typically found on Foursquare homes popular at that time. It is unclear whether this decision was a stylistic one or due to expense, since rebuilding the more complicated Queen Anne roof would have been more expensive. The results are not unpleasant, but do lead to a moment of pause as we try to reconcile the different parts into a stylistic whole.
