1926 Standard House Plans: The Washington

The Washington evokes all the nostalgia associated with the rose-covered cottage. The lattice entry, Dutch Colonial style, and symmetry combine to meet every ideal of home and hearth. A good sized home, it offers almost 1900 square feet of living space. Casement windows are used throughout the three upstairs bedrooms. Each bedroom is larger than average. What would be described as the master bedroom also has its own bathroom, for a total of two full bathrooms. Main floor rooms are large; the living room is particularly good sized at 318 square feet. A sun parlor opens off the living room for a longer view. French doors are used throughout the main floor. The entry opens to a closed vestibule then opens to a large reception hall thus conserving heat.

"When one looks thoughtfully at the colonial style of architecture as shown in The Washington, his thoughts go back to the days when the love of home and family were the most sacred emotions in the hearts of men. There are men with a steadfastness of purpose who inwardly long for the colonial days, and to such The Washington will be an inspiration."
