Dignified in every line and proportion, this aristocratic member of the Colonial period has many prototypes in all parts of the United States. Some of the original homes built by early settlers along the Atlantic seaboard, have stood and served as lovely homes for more than a century – testifying to the permanence of design and good construction.
Inviting indeed, is the large front porch inset under the graceful sweep of the main roof. Well proportioned square columns tie it in as a part of the main structure. Screened in summer, it forms a most popular place.
The dormer shown on the front perspective is repeated on the rear and helps to break up the otherwise large roof area. The stone base of the chimney is an unusual and interesting detail. The front wall under the porch roof is planned to be covered with brick, while the balance of the walls are of wide bevel siding which we suggest painting white or cream.
On each side of the six panel Colonial front, door glazed sidelights furnish brightness and necessary light to the central hall where you also have a convenient closet for wraps. Every home builder will enjoy planning and furnishing the large living room with open fireplace. The rear porch is accessible from both dining room and kitchen and gives the necessary protection. The kitchen is a real efficient work center with good light and wall space for all necessary equipment. Cellar stairs and broom closet are located under the main stairs.
The wide enclosed stairway leads to upstairs hall which connects the three bedrooms and bath. The Master bedroom is above the average size with dressing alcove, two closets and three exposures. No waste space in this home. Every foot is used to the best advantage. The location of the bath enables all plumbing fixtures to “plumb in” in one stack.
The plan is 32 ft. wide and 30 ft. 4 in. deep and will look attractive on a lot 50 ft. wide.
