What Houzz contributors are saying:

Steven Corley Randel, Architect added this to Roots of Style: Colonial Revivals Span Eras and Forms
At first glance you might consider this house Georgian, but take a closer look at the fenestration. Commonly on colonial revivals, the lower-level windows are grouped rather than spaced apart like the upper-floor windows. The double-hung windows have divided panes, or lights, on the upper sash, but have a single pane of glass on the lower sash, a trait common to the revival but not used on authentic colonial houses.Keeping in mind the eclectic nature of the revival, unusual here are the eave brackets, which are reminiscent of the Italianate style. Also note the brick. Many early examples of the style had wood siding, but grand examples were full masonry construction. It was not until the early 1920s that the technique of brick veneering developed, and it became the fashionable choice for many colonial revivals built after then, as exemplified here.The architects have labeled this house as a foursquare, which describes its building type, rather than its style. Colonial revival foursquares are common, as are Prairie-inspired foursquares. A foursquare is simply a plan with two levels, each two rooms wide and two rooms deep. The style is established in the details of windows, cornices, porches and entrances.
