1926 Standard House Plans: The Staunton

The Staunton model, like most of the Standard homes of the period, is an eclectic combination of styles. It combines the simplicity of a Cape Cod with the asymmetrical roof line found in many of the English style cottages. The rounded entry points to a minor Spanish influence. Two well proportioned bedrooms and a good size bath provide pleasant private spaces. A cozy living room opens to a large covered porch. At about 1350 square feet, it is a pretty little house for a small family.

"Crowded tenements and apartment houses are the hotbeds of jealousy, disease and discord. It is hard for the heart to find room for expression when the mind is full of the cobwebs of gossip. Those who are earnestly seeking a purer atmosphere, where their children can be brought up in a better environment, will find The Staunton an ideal house for a home."
