This 6,500 sq-ft spec house was to be built adjacent to an established historic neighborhood with a cornucopia of beautifully restored period homes in a Boston MetroWest town. This blended design links to the various historic turn-of-the-20th century styles of that historic district.
The cladding would be painted shingles. The deep overhang of the Craftsman style roof has exposed tail rafters, adding to the period authenticity of the style. Colonial Revival details include a covered front porch w/ square posts and entablature, along with use of the classic Chinese Chippendale railing of the 2nd floor balcony.
