1926 Standard House Plans: The Castleton

Though an average size home by current standards, the Castleton is about 2200 square feet. The layout is similar to much later homes however with a powder room downstairs, a shared bath upstairs and a full master bathroom off a very large master bedroom. An unusual arcade spans the driveway on one side, which is balanced by a walled terrace on the other. The style was common in Southern California and Florida during the 1920s.

"Once in a great while a new idea is born, a thing of rare beauty developed by a dreamer or something entirely original is expressed by the hand of an artist. The Castleton is a new idea in the field of architecture, a creation of rare beauty, with originality expressed in every line and graceful curve."
