Depicted by a simple box shape and the large central dormer, this style of colonial home is called the Foursquare. Its full-width porch and low roof with a deep overhang are also in keeping with this post-Victorian design. The simple white and green color scheme ties into the style of the home.
This house is considered to be an American Foursquare Colonial. Its elevated construction made it an ideal choice for a French parterre garden, the house easily able to look over the garden's formal, orderly layout.
An American country oak sideboard holds a collection of antique brass candlesticks, bowls and hand bells. A pair of Victorian tole lanterns, blue and white striped wallpaper and a Colonial painting add sophisticated country style to the space.
Influenced by Colonial and Victorian architecture, the uniquely American Farmhouse home style looks just right with tall, narrow, double-hung windows, bay windows and window groupings, and 2-over-2 grille patterns. Black exterior window frames add striking contrast for curb appeal.
