Ravenna

Ravenna’s exterior is distinguished by front and rear double galleries inset beneath a gable roof. The first floor galleries display Doric columns while the second floor columns are of the higher Ionic order, a worldly first step in the newly imported style. The interiors of Ravenna are beautifully detailed, but the elegant curves of its elliptical staircase and the entrance hall arch spanning a Doric screen reveal a hesitation by the builders to abandon the Federal Style and embrace the purely angular Greek Revival. Looking out on the ravine feels like a step back in time. One can easily imagine the interesting tales of the homes colorful history as they come to life in this lovely and timeless setting.
