Italianate Influences and a Colonial Style Door

Flags Above Duke of Gloucester Street on a Cloudy Summer Morning in Annapolis Maryland July 27th 2017

I’m not sure what first caught my attention about this c1880 residence when I passed by it earlier this morning, though it could have been its grid like facade of eight windows and door, or perhaps the flags hanging from each of the second story windows. Actually thinking about it as I was composing this blog post it might have been the seemingly odd mix of architectural details set across this Duke of Gloucester Street townhouse’s stucco exterior.

Certainly the front door has Colonial details while each window frame, along with the dentil molding and curved brackets, are of an Italianate influence, which together are a bit unusual from an architectural design standpoint. In addition the half circle brick steps are a bit different in that I’ve only seen them once before at a house on Market Street here in Annapolis.

Then again the three flags serve to draw one’s eye away from the dominate blue-grey backdrop of the afore mentioned stucco facade by adding a favorable amount of color to this cloudy summer morning sidewalk setting.

Have a good day,

Glenn
