Henry Baskervill House
1912, Noland and Baskervill. 310 S. Boulevard (at Idlewood Ave.)
  • (courtesy Richard Guy Wilson)

Baskervill, presumably with his partner William Noland, who did most of the firm's design work, created this handsome, expansive Mediterranean Revival house before speculative town houses and apartment buildings came to dominate the streetscape of the Boulevard. Constructed of brick with a stucco exterior, the house has a recessed five-bay loggia, an element that later provided a motif for the firm's public buildings.
