The Dumont is a bungalow style duplex that was popular in cities across the US, especially on the edges of growing towns. Now, many are located in inner city neighborhoods and are desirable urban homes. The low hipped roof, exposed rafters and beams, and front-gabled entrys are complimented by sturdy brick piers and sloping columns. Called a double house, this side-by-side duplex has almost 1300 square feet. There are three good sized bedrooms and a bathroom upstairs. Downstairs, easy traffic flows through the living room to connected dining area and then to the kitchen in the rear.
"The Dumont cannot be surpassed as a double house, and will make homes of exceptional advantages and refinements for those whose experience and education have taught them the value of good fellowship and neighborly kindness. Learning to cooperate with our fellow creatures is the secret of overcoming selfishness and all of its poisoning effects upon our better selves."
