Schindel House

-A A +A
1939. 4716 Lakeview Dr.

English period revival pictur-esqueness is displayed here at its fullest. The roofs tumble down in a wide variety of quaint and delightful ways. Out of the roof springs an overscaled chimney and tucked-in dormers. The front door to the dwelling is inconspicuously placed to one side under a small shed roof; what greets the visitor (as it should) are the large paneled doors of the attached garage.
