Design Styles Part 3 - Colonial Revival Architecture

Our series on Architectural Styles is at the halfway mark. The first two styles we looked at were characteristically American, but not the most common in and around Louisville. Today’s style however is abundantly prevalent on the real estate Louisville landscape.

 

Colonial Revival architecture, like all of the previous styles we have viewed, has resulted from something in the past. However whereas the Craftsman and the Four Square reacted to a negative view of a previous style, Colonial Revival occurred from a positive view of a previous style.

As the name suggests Colonial Revival (appoxiamtely 1880’s-1950’s) was a revisiting and reenergized fascination with historic Colonial architecture from the period 1714 to 1830. This period is known as Georgian Architecture as it occurred during unbroken reign of King George 1st to King George 4th.  

 

There are several characteristics of Colonial Revival architecture. These houses were usually double story homes. The apex or the ridge pole of the roof runs parallel to the road so that the front of the home is a large wall of windows and front door that faces the street. This front facade is symmetrical so that the windows are arranged equally on both sides of the doorway.

 

Probably the most famous Colonial Revivalist Architect in and around Louisville is Stratton Owen Hammon who lived from 1904-1997. He graduated from U of L and later opened his own architecture firm.

 

He also served our country during WW2 in the United States Army Corps of Engineers. His architectural skills were put to use during this time and he oversaw the construction of the then named Columbus Air Support Base. He also took part in the famous “D-Day” invasion which was so vividly portrayed at the beginning of the movie “Saving Private Ryan”.

 

During the final stages of the war Hammon served as part of the so called “Monuments Men” officially known as the Monuments, Fine Arts, and Archives program. Their role in the war was to preserve monuments and works of art that may be affected by the war and later to then find and return works of art that were stolen by the Nazis.

 

The story of the Monuments Men was portrayed in a George Clooney directed film. This film had a fantastic ensemble cast and premiered in 2014. Interestingly Matt Damon, who was the title character of Saving Private Ryan, also starred in The Monuments Men.

 

Stratton Owen Hammon built many Colonial Revival homes in Kentucky. The photos you see in this blog are from a 4 bedroom, 3.5 bathroom home we sold this year. If you have any real estate needs please don’t hesitate to contact Scott Boehnlein or one of our dedicated agents at Family Realty.

Design Styles Part 2 - The American Four Square

Yesterday we started a blog series on different architectural styles that you might find when viewing real estate Louisville. We began the series with the American Craftsman style. Another popular style of home in America is the American Four Square. This style grew in popularity the same time as the American Craftsman.

 

These two styles are related in many ways and even developed for similar reasons. It is quite common to find houses that are American Craftsmen and Four Square combined. This is probably due to the fact the Four Square can be more of a layout than an Architectural Style, although it does have its own unique Architectural features.

 

Like the Craftsman the Four Square was a reaction to what came before it, namely the Victorian style’s proliferation of mass produced and ornate features. As the name suggests Four Square homes were basically a large square divided into four squares on the first 2 floors.

 

These homes were mostly 2.5 story homes with the top story usually being one large room with a few dormer windows. The first floor typically functioned as the living area with a living room, dining room, kitchen, and a foyer/stairwell. The second floor was typically three to four bedrooms with a bathroom and stairwell.

 

This style of home maximized the use of space on small city lots and maximized room space within the structure. Other common features of this style include a steep, pyramidal roof, a wide covered porch with stairs either to the side or in the middle, and big windows for lots of natural light.  

 

Ironically, although this style was started in reaction to the mass production of the previous era, it became one of the most popular mail order homes that came complete with instructions for self-assembly.

 

Four Square homes are still very popular today. The pictures we featured in this blog are of a 4 bedroom, 1.5 bathroom Four Square home which we sold in 2016. If you have any real estate needs or questions please contact Scott Boehnlein of Family Realty or any of our agents

Fall Leaves and a Price Reduction - 5010 Routt Rd - $475,000

Fall is famous for its fabulous leaf color changes which changes the landscape of real estate Louisville. The yellows, oranges, and reds set the landscape on fire as leaves transition away from their Summer green. Interestingly what is happening inside the leaf is a chemical change.

 

The green in the leaf is due to the chlorophyll which produces the leaves’ food from the Sun’s light. But as the days shorten the leaves stop producing food. The chlorophyll begins to vanish exposing the colors produced by other chemicals which were previously masked by the green.

 

That is the process designed inside the leaf to express the magnificent beauty in forests of fall colors. Imagine having your very own forest to viewing this beautiful chemical change. 5010 Routt Rd has its very own wooded area thick with trees which you can view the fall changes from the back porch.  

 

This spacious multi-level home is large in every way. The first floor has a formal dining room, eat in kitchen, large pantry, and master with ensuite. The two story great room has a fireplace, built-in bookcase, and a wall of windows through which you can view the same forest.

 

The second level has 3 good sized bedrooms and 1 full bath. The mostly finished basement includes a great room, wet bar, formal dining area, full bath, and another versatile room.

 

The basement opens onto the back yard which has ample open grass, the large wooded area mentioned above, and a 768 Sq Ft out-building. There is also an attached 3 car-garage with access into the kitchen. Please contact Scott or Christopher Boehnlein at Family Realty if you are interested or just need more information.

The second floor is completed with 3 more good sized bedrooms and a full bathroom. The basement and backyard are also significant features of this home. The basement has a finished family room, half bath, bonus room, and an unfinished but neat storage area.

The large bar seats 12 people and includes a kitchen with stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops and upgraded cabinets. This is side by side a large lounging area with TV.

There is also a theater room, yes a projector style theater room, with a platform for multi-level viewing. If somehow you are still bored there is an additional rec room for table tennis or a pool table.

This incredible basement opens to an amazing backyard which is perfect for all seasons (unless we see serious snow this winter). This outside space contains a gas grill for Summer grill outs, and a giant built in brick fire place for melting marsh mellows, sipping hot choclate, and hanging with friends and family in the colder months.
