"Quo Amplius Eo Amplius Est! " A very rough translation of the motto carved around the tourret of this 1906 ultra detailed home on Queen Anne Hill might read Where Excess Marches On There is Enough, but don't quote me. :-) This is the most elaborately detailed house I've ever seen. There is nothing I've seen to rival it on the west coast, even among San Francisco's grand painted ladies. Everywhere you look there is some pattern, color, whimsically crafted detail. It is amazing and fun. I came across it by chance out photowalking the QA neighborhood on a gray day, and came back when it was sunny. Lots more detail shots at More Seattle Stuff.
