1926 Standard House Plans: The Copeley

The Copeley combines farmhouse sensibilities with a symmetrical, side-gabled Colonial Revival style. A dropped roof runs the length of the house to cover the porch, which is supported by two Ionic-style columns. The side of the house extends to embrace the porch and is topped off with a pair of round finials. Either the finials or columns would be fine alone, but the facade appears a little fussy with both. The layout is a standard Four Square plan of about 1150 square feet with three bedrooms and a bath upstairs and living space on the main floor. Despite it's small size, it has a half bath adjacent to the kitchen and a breakfast nook.

"The money paid for rent will soon pay for the house rented, but it is still the landlord's, and the only thing of value which the renter has to show is a bundle of rent receipts. For those who resolve to spend their money more wisely, The Copley will prove to be a permanent investment with daily dividends of independence beyond any monetary value."
