Shuler House

-A A +A
1905–1906, Frederick G. Clausen and Rudolph J. Clausen. 1 Prospect Terrace

Houses such as this were usually thought of as Georgian at the time they were built. In truth they really are a domestic version of the Beaux-Arts, for there is in fact very little that is either English or American Georgian about them. In the two-and-a-half-story Shuler house, one's attention is centered on the two-story Ionic columned porch with the first-floor veranda carefully tucked underneath it. The brick walls are appropriately quoined, and the third floor, which lies above the principal cornice, has round-arched dormer windows.
