Devil in the Details

Norwood St. Halifax

At first glance this Norwood St. abode could be described as a classic Halifax home, with many houses similar in colour and style.  But once you allow yourself to really take in the many interesting pieces you realize the details are what make this home really stand out.   The mansard roof, arched and bay window and the eave brackets look like second empire style.

The cream trim draws attention to the architectural details that make this house have a statuesque presence, especially when looking from the street below almost exaggerating the height and drawing your eye up toward the sky. 

Ironwork Norwood St.

The iron railings add a touch of the earlier American empire architecture and a splash of spooky during this time of year, just add pumpkins!
