Graynook, Bridgeport, Connecticut:

Also known as Charles B. Baker House, Graynook is one of fourteen unique buildings in Bridgeport’s Marina Park Historic District. This Shingle-Style Queen Anne structure at 72 Park Avenue was built in 1891 by architect Warren R. Briggs. The first homeowner, Charles B. Baker, was the Park City’s best known dentist. Graynook mimicked the Shavian manor house design popularized by Victorian-era architect R. Norman Shaw. The same styles were employed to construct nearby homes in Marina Park including P.T. Barnum’s “Marina” (demolished), the Parmly House and the Bryant House.
