This highly unusual home is clearly gothic revival, but it is not the familiar Victorian era gothic revival that we all know with its characteristic high peaked roof and lacy bargeboards. Rather, it is a conception of gothic from the early 20th century when period revival architecture of all sorts was coming into vogue and architects were attempting to replicate romanticized historical ideals from all corners of the globe. The home was designed by Stockton architect Glenn Allen whose practice consisted mostly of large commercial structures and the scale of embellishment feels almost as though it has been adapted from a larger building.
