Arthur Emmons House

-A A +A
1882–1883, Peabody and Stearns. 300 Gibbs Ave.

Also of note on Gibbs Avenue is the Arthur Emmons House, which handsomely combines shingle and brick. The dominant features here are the multistory brick wall rising to a stepped gable and the attenuated chimney flanking the porte-cochere of the main entry. The roof sweeps off the main block in an exaggerated curve, sheltering the entry under its projection. As in Dudley Newton's Gibbs House, expansive windows and porches overlook a garden slope toward Easton's Pond.
