Germantown Home Asking $269K Comes With Architecture Lesson


It's actually a Dutch Colonial home, according to the brokerbabble, thank you very much. This house is charming, large, and has a nice outdoor space, but the real gem here is in the listing copy.

According to the broker, this house isn't just a house, it's a Dutch Colonial house, and it's not just a Dutch Colonial house either:
Dutch Colonial is a style of domestic architecture, primarily characterized by gambrel roofs having curved eaves along the length of the house. Modern versions built in the early 20th century are more accurately referred to as "Dutch Colonial Architectural Revival" which describes this home perfectly.
Well then. According to the listing, the house was built in 1893, so it doesn't conform perfectly to this architectural description, but hey, who's counting?
House Vitals:
Size: Five bedrooms, 2.5 baths, 2,364 sq ft.
Amenities Include: A yard, a front porch and a back porch, stained glass, high ceilings, exposed beams, and "Dutch Colonial Architectural Revival" authenticity.
