This reprint of a scarce work — one of a series of influential architectural compilations that first appeared after the turn of the century — contains numerous illustrations and floor plans for the eighty charming American country homes that were built nationwide in the 1920s. Varying in size and style, the houses include a cozy two-bedroom cottage in New Hampshire, a charming two-story home of brick and stucco in Forest Hills, New York; a three-bedroom frame dwelling with breezeway in Tenafly, New Jersey; a spacious Pennsylvania fieldstone colonial; and a two-story artist's studio/residence in Santa Barbara, California.
An invaluable primary reference for architects and students of architectural history, this inspiring sourcebook of house plans and designs will also be of special value to anyone interested in restoring old homes.
