1926 Standard House Plans: The Northcliff

There are several similar Dutch Colonials in this catalog. Several have shed dormers, Colonial Revival entries, and sun parlors. Each is attractive and the only variation is the floor plan. This model is almost 1700 square feet with Three average bedrooms, the largest of which has a dressing alcove. Bedroom closets are small, so an attic allows storage of off season clothes. This model has a clothes chute from the second floor to the basement, so hauling clothing and linens is a one way trip upstairs. Most women--past or present--would lose no time training the kids and spouse to put their clothes down the chute. This model, like a number of other Standard models, also has a lavatory sink just off the kitchen, close to the breakfast nook and dining room so the family could practice "good hygiene" by washing up before meals. A larger living room with a fireplace opens to a sun parlor.

"Every movement for human betterment first find expression in the home. There is something in the inner beings of optimistic men and women which prompts them to lend a hand to the helpless and give a word of cheer to the cheerless. Those who make The Northcliff their home will be prompted daily to radiate the sunshine its comforts will bring."
