Property Description

A grand estate cast in brick and stone, 431 W. Third remains an enduring icon on one ofLexington's early prominent avenues. Built at the turn of the last century by businessmanRichard T. Anderson, the home is Richardsonian Romanesque in style, reflecting themigration of Gilded Age sensibilities westward.As the son of a ''housejoiner,'' Anderson & family had long been enmeshed in the architecture ofearly Lexington. Anderson was intimately involved in the creation of John McMurtry's iconicFloral Hall (1882) and, as a director of Northern Bank, helped realize the bank's still-standingheadquarters at the corner of Short & Market. A progression of residences constructed by himeach reveal homes more sturdy and more highly- ornamented than the last. 431 West 3rd,Anderson's last, is his masterwork. The Richardsonian Romanesque style's eclectic natureprovides a canvas for self-expression. Stonework is a medium for personally-selected, symbolicmascarons and botanical elements.
