Logan House

-A A +A
c. 1936, Morton Geis. 1813 Grand Ave.

The two-story block of this suburban Colonial Revival house is Georgian; projecting forward on each side are one-story wings with large tripartite windows. Off the central section to the right is the service wing, its fenestration comprised of a central window balanced on each side by round windows. The rear wing plus the two projecting front wings feature a roof balustrade, solid in part but with occasional latticework openings. The one-story wings read as Regency or Federal in style and are in subtle contrast to the Georgian-inspired central section of the house.
