Pershing Place Between Euclid Avenue and Kingshighway

In between Euclid and Kingshighway, Pershing Place takes on a distinctively different character, with much more emphasis on English influences in architecture. Interestingly, the lots on the north side of the former Berlin Avenue, which Pershing Place once was before World War I, were actually platted as part of the larger Hortense Place addition.

There is Tudor Revival architecture, and also what might be referred to as Regency Revival.

There’s also certainly a vein of Renaissance Revival, as well.

Some of the houses are quite massive!

The entrance gates on Kingshighway are relatively simple.

Some of the houses by Euclid are also relatively simple, and were probably built later on open lots that were sold off by owners of adjacent mansions on the street.
