The Genessee is a two-story Craftsman-style house with elaborated rafter tails, knee braces, and battered columns on brick piers. It's just 1152 square feet, but living spaces are more than adequate for a happy family of 3 or 4. The two bedrooms are larger than average and one has access to a sleeping porch. Two large porches on the main floor provide covered outdoor space for relaxation. It's a modest house without frills, but more than adequate for the needs of many families.
"Those who put their savings into get-rich-quick schemes instead of homes of their own are, as a rule, the most dependable support of landlords. The suburban streets of all cities could be lined with artistic homes similar to The Genessee with the money which is yearly fooled away with fakers who play upons the imagination of the inexperienced."
