1525 Saint Charles, Alameda

Today we feature a pretty unusual high-peaked colonial revival in Alameda. This house is really a strange smorgasbord of disparate details. I can’t say I have seen one exactly like this before. The front of the house has flared gables, square bays, a second floor bay with a conical roof, and a single round-topped window. The chimney is also on the front of the house (which is pretty unusual for homes of this vintage), but it is only visible on the first floor. Up above it ducks behind the large flared gable and between two windows only to appear again above the roof. Inside, everything is amazingly well-preserved. The details are a bit more conventional, though the pediment over the window in the entry is a bit surprising – overall, an interesting and eclectic home for an unconventional homeowner.
