    Classic Home 003

    ArchWeek Image

    Exterior overivew of Classic Home 003, designed by Glenn Phelps, architect.

    This attractive seven-room dwelling has an exterior of stucco with some half-timbered work in the gables. This house was published originally in the Small House Page of the New York Tribune in 1923, and received extremely favorable comment. Many persons indicated interest in building the house because of its impressive but practical character for a dwelling of such limited size.

    In designing the exterior the architect has very cleverly used long sweeping roof lines but has provided a sufficient number of breaks and details to eliminate any possible monotony. By the selection of proper stucco color and roof shingles, it is possible to develop a most pleasing architectural effect.

    The house is entered through a small vestibule into a central hall, which has a wide inter-room opening into commodious living quarters. These include a large living room, with open fireplace, the size of which is augmented by a sun porch running across the entire end of the house and connected through the living room by two doors; or wide French doors may be used.

    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.
