Dutch Colonial Style

The Dutch Colonial Style home gets its main feature from the gambrel roof and dormer windows. And in many cases, we see the chimneys on each end and the flared eaves. This design was built between 1890 and 1930, and the house has brick or stone facing and is typically a symmetrical design.

The home takes advantage of the roof area for living space and the dormer windows in the front are generally not very tall.

To match the architecture of the home, we see a stone fence between the sidewalk and the front yard.
