Design B-7289

1918 American Modern Homes by the C. L. Bowes Co.

In keeping with the Colonial Revival affinity for the symmetrical façade, this plan has the expected balance and simplicity that was calculated to appeal to a potential buyer.  It has a closed plan; the basic layout is essentially a Foursquare, but the second floor affords less head room by virtue of the cross-gabled roof. The awkward placement of the stairs begs for redesign. One distinctive feature is the closed cornice return. They are unusual, but not uncommon.
