This Rockridge home is a bit of a mash-up. From the outside it appears mostly Mediterranean, with its clusters of oversized brackets, wrought iron, and exposed beam ends poking through the stucco skin. But the tile roof is notably absent, and the home also has a bit of a prairie feel due to the wide overhanging roof and broad horizontal band that caps the upper story windows. Inside, much of the original detailing is intact, and it feels decidedly less Mediterranean and more craftsman, though the interesting double pan ceilings with stepped corners feel perhaps a bit Latin, and the unusually wide picture rail again adds a bit of prairie flavor.
