William R Nash

The William R. Nash House is an early 20th century "Colonial Revival" house that employs the juxtaposition of two scales of Corinthian columns as its major architectural motif. The grand entrance portico, marked by two pairs of colossal columns and a highly-decorated and prominent attic-level pediment, is superimposed over balustraded porches on both the 1st and 2nd storeys. The house is a 2 1/2-story motif fed rectangular block of wood-frame construction with a hipped roof and projecting gables. It sits on a 3/4-acre lot in the Houston neighbourhood of Westmoreland, amid other large, early 20th century houses.
