Design for a Double Townhouse (front elevation)

Alexander Jackson Davis American

Not on view

Although Davis generally designed classical city houses, maintaining that the more romantic styles were better suited to suburban and country homes, this double townhouse, with its roofline supported by decorative eaves brackets, is an attractive example of the Gothic Revival style. We have no indication of whether the designs were actually realized, or whether this was just an object of study for Davis.
