1035. 119 Kingston - Bungalow/Craftsman

c. 1919 This is a typical example of a Dormer Front Bungalow in the Craftsman style. The Bungalow is identified by its one-and-a-half story floor plan and gable front dormer window. Craftsman style features include exposed rafter tails and brick porch with 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.) (Craftsman: popular at the same time as the American Foursquare, 1910-1930, but rather different in aesthetics and effect. Many Craftsman houses are one-and-a-half story cottages that attempt to convey coziness and quaintness. They are oftentimes asymmetrical with exposed carpentry of some type and a variety of roofing materials.)
