1926 Standard House Plans: The Kimberley

The Kimberley is unabashed English cottage style with its overlapped, steeply pitched front gables. The vertical character is emphasized by the banks of tall, narrow windows. At about 1570 square feet, it's a good sized three bedroom, one bath home with storybook charm. Access to the second floor is provided by a staircase at the far end of the living room. Conveniently, the kitchen accesses the same stairway. There is both a good size porch off the kitchen for alfresco coffee in the summer and a breakfast nook. An attic provides extra storage space.

"There is something void in the being of a man who has the care neither of a home nor a family. Within the walls of his selfish fancy he may boast of his freedom and life of ease, but he is a prisoner indeed who knows not the joys of conjugal companionship, and the care and responsibility of home, perhaps in the class of The Kimberley."
