HISTORY: Designed by prominent local architect, Stephen Decatur Button, this house is part of a group of row houses located just a block from the seashore. With its narrow footprint, many bedrooms, and a plan distributed over 3 floors, it's ideally suited for city living. The kitchen and a small entry porch face the street, while a large porch connects the living room to the back garden. Above this a wide bay window stretches across the back, giving the bedrooms above plenty of light.
As a work of art these prints are worth purchasing in their own right. For those of you interested in building a historically inspired house, these plans offer an excellent starting point. The plan is ideally suited for a flat site. This house would be comfortable in a city setting. This spacious home has outside dimensions of approximately 20' x 60', which includes porches.
