Arts and Crafts style homes have become very popular in New England and they fit in beautifully with the style and atmosphere of Boston suburbs. This trend that originated in the 40’s and 50’s has been perfected by a developer I work with, Wellbuilt, and is making the Winchester and Lexington residents fall in love once again.
Some of the key features of a craftsman style home feature wide eaves, beamed ceilings, square stock base boards and trim, front porch square or tapered columns with wood, stone or brick, lower pitched roofs, open plan living with a racetrack floor plan design, 10′ ceilings on the main floor and 9′ ceiling heights on second floor, hardwood floors, painted or un-painted wood trim, custom built ins, square columns in the living and dining rooms, gable over large front porch, wood shingles on gable ends, lots of wood work, exterior stone chimney, stone fireplace, wainscoting, custom moldings with wood trim and so on.
