1926 Standard House Plans: The Jefferson

Homes like the Jefferson are today often found in gracious older neighborhoods of similar homes. Dutch Colonial style homes have considerable charm with their classic features and this house is no exception. It's symmetrical, formal, generous and pleasing in size and proportion. Classic details like the porch are interpreted with modern flair. Covered verandas on either side provide grounding and visual balance. It's a large home at 2720 square feet, even by current standards, with three large bedrooms including a spacious master bedroom with its own full bath. The huge livingroom has a fireplace that is flanked on either side by French doors leading to the veranda. The kitchen has a good sized walk-in pantry and breakfast nook.

"The faculty of inhabitiveness (the love of one's place of birth) is developed far more in the young man or woman whose home has been one of sunshine and freedom than in those whose place of habitation has been sordid and cramped. One would naturally expect the youth from The Jefferson to reflect all of the joy and purity of a wholesome environment."
