Red brick is popular throughout the city east of Grand, but as the urban area moved west, less and less of it appeared on the front facades of houses. In Compton Heights, owners could afford to have the new tan brick on all four sides.

The tan brick gives a nice, southern European feel to this Renaissance Revival mansion below.
