If you had asked me 6 months ago what a “Romanesque Revival” home looks like, I believe my response would have been something like:

“ummm….old, European, dark, definitely old.”

Well, suffice to say we are quickly becoming pseudo-experts on this style of architecture.  I could bore you with tedious details, but instead I’ll give you a few points that might make you feel just a smidge smarter the next time someone brings up this topic at the dinner table (insert: laugh).

1.  Round arches over entryways or windows – check.


2.  Thick masonry walls – check.


3.  Rounded towers (turrets) – check, check.

    Hi.. My husband and I love old homes !! We are thrilled that you became the new owner and can’t wait to see the work in progress. Would you consider giving a “before” tour of the home? Glenda
