1926 Standard House Plans: The Don Carlo

The Don Carlo has just about 1800 square feet with three spacious bedrooms and one bath. A large terrace with a covered entry marks the front of this two-story, hip-on-gable stucco home with mixed Mission and English cottage characteristics. Under a gentle curved roof line, French doors oven to the terrace,. They are balanced by a set of four windows in the front facing gable. Inside, there are three fireplaces: one each in the living room, dining room, and main floor bedroom. The galley kitchen is relatively narrow, but still affords space for a breakfast nook and walk-in pantry. The central reception hall provides easy traffic flow to each room on the main floor as well as the stairway.

"There is something in the nature of a woman that calls for seclusion in the home life. Presumably it is the maternal instinct that instinctively leads to privacy for protection. The woman whose inner self calls for a freer life in a private home, will obey the most sacred impulse if she patiently persists until such call is answered by the posssession of the Don Carlo."
