1036. 111 Kingston - Bungalow/Craftsman

c. 1919 Much like the house preceding, this is a text-book example of a Dormer Front Bungalow in the Craftsman style. This home, however, features an oriel window on the side. Notice also the distinctive knee brackets under the eaves. (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.)
