1926 Standard House Plans: The Chelton

The Chelton has a charming, small cottage look with its low, bungalow style hip-on-gable roof. It is also reminiscent of a Colonial Revival Cape Cod. It's a small house with about 1144 square feet. The ribbon of three windows in front is balanced with a side entry porch. At 36 feet wide it would probably niftily fit a small lot. Inside, a long, narrow livingroom provides a focal point in the fireplace. It's a bit quirky with the breakfast nook located just outside the small kitchen as is the refrigerator. The bedrooms are on the small side, but adequate. Additional storage is available in a low attic and in the basement.

"The authority who said, "Give every family a home of their own with a garden and flowers and crime will vanish with a single generation"--knew well the inspiration which everone gains consciously or unconsciously from such surroundings. The Chelton style of architecture has ever been the theme of poets and sons of song."
