Thursday Is "This Old House Day"



This Queen Anne House, built in 1890, is located one block away from Quincy Center on Revere Rd. which will soon turn into the new city cross connector road.
This particularly fine example of the style has retained most of its salient characteristics. They include the projecting large two story gabled bay window on the facade, the varied types of shingles and clapboards, the irregular fenestration, the brackets and pendants atop the cut-off corner windows and the fine porch. Of particular note is the ornamentation of the porch with its heavy turned posts, spindle and fret balustrade and spindle frieze with filled brackets with a sun burst design.

The porch is worth the close-up view.
