We recently looked at the very memorable Parkstone Dwellings, which were commissioned by siblings Harry and Rose Rubins.
Rose commissioned 7521 Graymore Road, and there's a hint of the Parkstone Dwellings in them -- a slight nod to the tiled "Oriental rugs" that hang over the side. This tiled design spruces (Scheiblers!) up a two-story window seat on an otherwise plainer house.
There is also an original tile over the front door.
Graymore Road is a treasure hunt in itself. It's just steps off of Braddock Avenue, across from the Old Heidelberg, and borders the eastern edge of Frick Park. The little cluster of out-of-the-way homes is quiet and hilly.

Graymore Road is a private road, the kind where people look out from their yards as though to say, "How did you even find us?" But Porter and I headed that way anyway. I can't imagine a girl with a camera can look very threatening with this face in tow.
