Koser House

-A A +A
1929. 305 Golfview Ave.

Projecting out from the surrounding foliage is a pair of steeply pitched gables that almost droop down to the ground. Between them is a segmental arched entrance with a center arched door flanked by small arched side windows. Though the dwelling is reasonable in size, it conveys a near-perfect picture of an enlarged fairy-tale cottage. Stylistically, it is medieval—more English than anything else.
