Davies House (Cambria Place)

-A A +A
Cambria Place
c. 1872. John Cochrane

This Victorian version of the Italianate Villa style is not only large and grand in size but it has acquired a variety of wood Eastlake details in sawed, turned millwork. Some changes and additions have been made to the two-and-a-half-story brick dwelling, but its essential character still remains.
