This unique home is one of the reasons we return, year after year, to the delightful Newlands Historic District for our Home Tour homes. This home at 1118 Nixon is in Newlands Terrace and is a Tudor Revival featuring a round tower with a pointed conical roof and narrow casement windows. Much of this neighborhood was created by real estate developer W. E. Barnard, who built homes that often looked like Spanish missions or fairytale castles. This home resembles a small castle, with its tower, smooth white stucco-over-brick exterior and pentagonal wood door. The home has a history of well-known local owners, including the Samuel Ginsburg family of Ginsburg Jewelers and Victor Anderson, of Victor Anderson Portraiture and is now owned by Arjen and Kristen Kuyper. We know you will love its quiet elegance and historic charm.
