Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This handsomely illustrated book showcases outstanding examples of suburban and country houses of the 1920sand#151;a great period for domestic architecture in the United States. Lovely photographs present exterior and interior views of 51 classic homes, primarily in the metropolitan area of New York City, as well as other suburbs on the east coast and in California.

A variety of distinctive architectural styles are depicted, from a simple Long Island Dutch colonial to an elegant Spanish villa in California with courtyard and terrace. Floor plans as well as interior and exterior views display an array of striking arrangements: central buildings with flanking wings and pavilions, arched passageways, kitchens with pantries, sun porches, servants' rooms, and even a "men's dining room"; while photographs depict such architectural details as sweeping staircases, gardens and pools, and decorative cornices, chimney caps, and fireplace mantels.

An ideal reference for preservationists and home restorers, this volume will delight enthusiasts of gracious architecture of the 1920s.
