Up on blocks

Another house up on blocks, this one in Santa Clara that is owned by the University of Santa Clara. It used to be located at 1065 Alviso Street just north of the campus, but was moved over to accommodate the construction of a new parking garage.

The house is a rare Early California false front. Haven’t looked at the historical background yet, but understand that the University commissioned a historical evaluation of it a couple of years ago. ¬†We have heard there is interest in moving this to a site nearby. Will keep you posted.
