Manson Gilbert for his mother, Annie H. Gilbert. The shaped gable is reminiscent of the style, as are the cloister-type entrance arches. Gilbert launched his architectural practice with this home in 1908. It was built as a rental house for his mother, a widow and no doubt was a promotional venture to introduce Manson's design talents to the city and get him commissions. The first renter was Walker Sonntag. Home is zoned R-3. Home to be sold in AS IS condition. Buyer is aware the home is subject to the guidelines and procedures for the Evansville Preservation Commission.

    I love it when agents include a bit of the history in the description. Not the most exciting Mission Revival ever posted but I like the exterior, the overhang and parapet (or dormer? I’m not sure if this is considered either or both.)

    I continue to be amazed by the numbers of Mission Revival/Spanish Colonial style homes remaining in the Midwestern states. While places like Florida, California, or Texas have a Spanish colonial heritage, its largely absent in the Midwest yet the revival style was obviously popular at least during the first quarter of the 20th century.

    This is a nice example of the revival style with only a few interior references to Mission style with more distinctive revival touches on the exterior. I especially like the quirky little side bay above the carport with its “Spanish” style roof. I think if one could find an old photo they would be able to determine the original appearance as well as later changes made to this house. The interior might lend itself to a reinterpretation that could accentuate the Spanish Revival feel (as seen in many California rehabs) or, alternately, downplay the Spanish style and make the interior look as many Foursquare type houses did in that era. For a creative person, this could be a fun project.

    This poor baby! It looks like it was once a lovely house. That siding can’t be original. Same for the wallpaper. Both look so strangely out of character.
