Porch Railings With Curved Balusters – House Parts We Love

Arlington Multi-Family House with Curved Porch Balusters

Arlington Multi-Family House with Curved Porch Balusters

Some people look at the whole – others are taken in by the parts.  With houses there are all sorts of unique, charming or unusual details that attract me.  Don’t ask me why but I really love curved porch balusters.  I don’t see them all that often but for some reason there are a number of houses with curved balusters lining the porches in Arlington near the Capitol Theatre on Mass Avenue and the nearby side streets. 

The Arlington houses are two-families built, I would guess, around 1910 or so.  Often there are front porches on the first and second level. The curved balusters lines the porches on both floors. I just love the look and have coveted those multi-families for years. The Capitol is a super movie theater and the surrounding neighborhood with its leafy streets lined with handsome houses is a very popular location for Arlington real estate buyers.

I don’t know anything about the history of these houses – perhaps one builder – who really liked porch railings with curved balusters too – built all of them.  If I find out more info I’ll add it here or if by chance you know something about these houses please let me know.

Porch railings with curved balusters are just one of the many features to love about houses in our area. As a real estate agent I’m always on the lookout – with camera in hand – for the special parts of houses that catch the eye  and make you say – that’s the one! That’s my house!
