House history:

An excerpt from
Oakland Place: Gracious Living in Buffalo
By Martin Wachadlo

Published by Buffalo Heritage Unlimited

[Williams] Lansing made maximum use of the narrow lot by designing two homes separated by a thick party wall. Together, 29 and 33 Oakland Place presented a balanced and unified façade. The façades and floor plans of these Colonial Revival residences were originally mirror images. Bays fronted the living rooms, which were situated under the master bedrooms. Although the entrances originally included front porches that were supported by smooth Tuscan columns, only the porch at 29 is still intact. The windows are nine-over-nine sash and a Palladian window on each side highlights the main staircase. Balustrades originally topped the high hip roof with its flaring eaves and the area between the dormers. The thick party wall is topped by a massive center chimney.


Special thanks to current owners Joan and Norman Effman for their cooperation.
