San Francisco Landmark #251
Glazer-Keating House
1110 Taylor Street
Built 1906

The following is excerpted from San Francisco Ordinance 212-05 (3 August 2005) which designated 1110 Taylor Street, the Glazer-Keating House, as a Landmark Under Planning Code Article 10:

The Glazer-Keating House [embodies] Neo-Georgian style from the Edwardian period in San Francisco. The language of classical architecture seen in Italian Renaissance design was adapted for use on historical Georgian homes, and this provided the precedent for Neo-Georgian type houses of the late 19th and 20th Centuries. The strong classical references found on the Glazer-Keating House serve to convey this background and clearly identify the house as belonging to the Neo-Georgian style.

Particular features that should be preserved are as follows:

  • exterior composition and materials
  • the ornamental cornice detailing
  • the front facing pediment with the scroll-with-acanthus modillions at the soffit
  • the exterior cladding organized as in a Classical entablature
  • the Tuscan order columns found on the south facade
  • the projecting bay with three windows surrounded by trim
