Dormer Front Bungalow/Craftsman
Designed by noted architect R. L. Young, this unusual Bungalow is much larger than most examples in the Old Silk Stocking District. Craftsman features include casement windows with divided lights in a two-over-one arrangement, brick and wood shingle walls, a dormer with balconette, and oriel window on the side of the house. The porch is also Craftsman in style and includes grouped brick columns.
(Bungalow: The bungalow form became the common builder’s house between 1910-1920. Characteristics include a low-pitched, gabled roof with wide overhang of eaves; false beams or braces under gables; incised porch (beneath main roof); tapered, square columns supporting roof; sash windows, often with Frank Lloyd Wright design motifs.)
