Penrose, July 2022, Part Two, Penrose Avenue and Environs

Continuing on Penrose Avenue, more or less, we see more housing stock that reminds me of the Greater Ville, which of course is not very far away, just south of Natural Bridge Avenue.

I’ve always been intrigued by these little one-story houses with the false roof on the front façade.

But then, we see a large country house that clearly predates the rest of the neighborhood, and was almost certainly a Shingle Style home originally, and as you can see from the door to nowhere on the second floor, once had a porch.

Then we see a row of Cape Cod houses, some that are true example of the style as well as some mixed in that are some adaptations of the classic American form.
