Charming Neo-Romanian Style House

This is a charming Neo-Romanian style house of well balanced proportions and gracious ornamental designs, from the town of Targoviste in southern Romania. I like the two air vents located on the wall frieze that have the shape of stylized Greek crosses. The chimney stack, the two arched windows endowed with ornate aprons, or the roof finial and crest are other prominent and finely constructed Neo-Romanian style elements.

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