While the more exclusive private streets nearby hold a vast wealth of stunning architecture, there are a couple of stately homes on the corner of Kingshighway and Lindell that deserve mentioning. I like the one below more than the one above, because it reminds me of one of my favorite mansions in Washington, DC. Look at that house here, at a later post and you can see the similarities.
The most striking aspect of the house is the round turret, which seems almost to be a distant holdover from Richardsonian Romanesque, but in a Beaux-Arts, Gilded Age sort of way. Note the false windows that contain the chimney flues, presumably.
The port-coacher is a great detail, if a bit narrow for a modern automobile.
I imagine that Lindell and Kingshighway were not the racetracks that they are nowadays; sadly, these houses now sit in what I would consider a traffic purgatory.
