Classic Home 005

Exterior overview of Classic Home 005, designed by R.C. Hunter & Bro., Architects.

"Here is a type of high-gabled stucco house which has proven particularly appealing in the attractive suburban districts of the eastern United States. The design is of English character accentuated by the half-timbered work in the large gable. The exterior is of stucco and the roofing is of copper, slate, or asbestos-cement shingles in varying colors. "The large brick chimney is capped by clay chimney pots, adding a touch of color. The windows throughout are of casement type, and flashings, gutters and leaders for this type of house will presumably be of copper with ornamental beads in stock designs. The plan is of elongated shape, offering an unusual opportunity for attractive interiors, and the architects have not failed to take advantage of these possibilities. The central hall provides access to the dining room and living room, from which French doors lead to a long tiled terrace and a large sun porch."

From 500 Small Houses of the Twenties, complied by Henry Atterbury Smith, from "The Books of a Thousand Homes," copyright 1923. The 1990 edition is published by Dover Publications, ISBN 0-486-26300-2.
