La Riviere

-A A +A
1892, William Ingles. 5 Ingles St.

Railroad engineer Ingles designed this imaginative two-and-a-half-story Queen Anne house. The most impressive feature of this stuccoed brick house is a battlemented, semicircular tower that rises as high as the steeply pitched hipped roof. A spacious wraparound porch offers views toward the river and the house incorporates a plant conservatory and an open vestibule with encaustic tile flooring and brownstone detailing. The entrance features a Dutch door hung on elaborate wrought-iron strap hinges, and stained and leaded-glass windows illuminate the tower.
