Charles Flaugher House

-A A +A
1890, Zack Eyres. 32 6th St. S.W.

This is a highly refined interpretation of the late Queen Anne. In this instance the earlier picturesque exuberance is held in check by a classical (Colonial Revival) restraint. This large-scale dwelling seems to spread gently over the surrounding broad lawn; the building's centerpiece is a corner domed pavilion over an expansive porch.
