James Nash Brown - Alice Scott - Reginald Knight Smith House
San Francisco, California

Ernest Coxhead was no stranger to Baroque detailing, as this dramatic entrance attests.  He often juxtaposed exaggerated classical details against an otherwise sedate, often plain, and occasionally rustic composition in the most original and  tongue-in-cheek manner.  In this design, the Lutyenesque entrance is more than grand enough to make up for its somewhat undignified relegation to a steeply sloping side street.  The location allowed Coxhead develop an internal layout that could take advantage of the views toward the city of San Francisco and its bay to the north, and the park to the south.  Photo taken in 2001 by Howard J. Partridge.
