Italianate - 1418 Elk Street

Large wooden brackets supporting the wide eaves of this gorgeous, very dressy Italianate home characterize its style. Its overall symmetry is emphasized and adorned by tall narrow shuttered windows and the large bay on the right side. Echoing the lovely wrought iron fence, a wrought iron railing on the flat roof of the porch, enhance the flavor of this beautiful example of the Italianate style.
