Italianate - 307 South Park

Built in 1865 by Senator Thomas Hoge, 307 South Park is a particularly formal, elegant version of the Italianate style.

Its wide pilastered doorway, surrounded by an elliptical fanlight and sidelights is balanced by tall, arched windows arranged in pairs. The wide pedimented entrance portico supported by bevelled columns and pilasters, is embellished with dentils and fanciful cutwork corners.

The low-pitched hipped roof with wide overhanging eaves and large single brackets on a wide cornice band are all elements of the Italianate style. Four tall corbelled chimneys complete the design.
