Turret on Admiral


This is a detail shot from one of my favourite houses in the Annex. Designed by architect Charles Gibson in the Queen Ann style, it was built in 1897 and has been beautifully restored and renovated in the last several years. Probably the loveliest street in the Annex, it is home to many consulates and celebrities such as author Margaret Atwood. The turret and the wonderful glass in it makes this place a stand-out!

The turret really makes this house a wow! Nice photo. RedPat, just wondering how you find the history of these homes and the art you feature on here. Please reply on my blog.

The turret looks a little odd being only half out! But I do agree it is beautiful. And I also love that blue!

Margaret Atwood! Very good.

Ah, this one is surely an architectural work of art!

what a cozy room! I'd love to visit.
I bet that little bay window is a special place in the house.
