Knightstown Architecture - Houses - Page 3

Take a look at this Italianate beauty. The use of arches in the porch and windows really adds character to this place. Unfortunately, the tree makes it difficult to get a really good picture of this stately residence.

It's really fun to see how the vents were fancied up and turned into decorative elements. The star pattern shown here works perfectly with the rest of the architectural details.

These lovely doors with their leaded glass add elegance to an already beautiful entrance.

The corbels are very intricate. This is some serious scroll saw work. As a side note, these corbels are probably much larger than you would expect. We were shocked when we found a couple of the original corbels inside the tower room of Toad Hall. They are big, and heavy!

Bay windows are a great addition to any room. And here, it's also a balcony. The corbels on this section are different than the ones on the eaves. 

The iron fence is set on top of a rock wall and has very fancy corners. It's a fine detail added to an already lovely property.
