There is everything present in this house that constitute the hallmarks of the Neo-Romanian style: short Byzantine ornate columns, a citadel like aspect, arched Wallachian monastery like windows, etc. What I especially like is the Neo-Romanian style themed  street fence- the fence posts and wrought iron fence. The whole ensemble models a Romanian squire’s early c19th country mansion, the conac, built in the middle of a large town and represents a true architectural gem and also a superb potential renovation project.

I endeavor through this daily image series to inspire appreciation of the historic houses of Romania, a virtually undiscovered, but fascinating chapter of European architectural heritage.
