BUNGALOW STYLE

These narrow, rectangular one and one-half story houses originated in California during the 1880’s as a reaction to the elaborate decoration of Victorian homes. The style then moved eastward to the Midwest in the early 20th century, where it remained popular until the Great Depression. Bungalows have low-pitched gabled or hipped roofs and small covered porches at the entry. The style became so popular that you could order a bungalow kit from Sears and Roebuck catalog.  The name “bungalow” had it’s origins in India, where it indicated a small, thatched home.   [wnt_grid keyid=”1″ maptype=”disabled” ownertype=”all” paginated=”true” sortoptions=”true” maxresults=”10″ search_mode=”form” primarysearchtype=”active” searchtype=”city” state=”MI” county=”Livingston” min_price=”80000″ max_price=”1000000000″ listing_status=”Active” single_family=”y” style=”Bungalow” condo=”y” city=”Hamburg Township” /]

CAPE COD STYLE

Some of the first houses built in the United States were Cape Cods. The original colonial Cape Cod homes were shingle-sided, one-story cottages with no dormers. During the mid-20th century, the small, uncomplicated Cape Cod shape became popular in suburban developments. A 20th-century Cape Cod is square or rectangular with one or one-and-a-half stories and steeply pitched, gabled roofs. It may have dormers and shutters. The siding is usually clapboard or brick.  [wnt_grid keyid=”1″ maptype=”disabled” ownertype=”all” paginated=”true” sortoptions=”true” maxresults=”10″ search_mode=”form” primarysearchtype=”active” searchtype=”city” state=”MI” county=”Livingston” min_price=”80000″ max_price=”1000000000″ listing_status=”Active” single_family=”y” style=”Cape Cod” city=”Hamburg Township” condo=”y” /]

COLONIAL STYLE

America’s colonial period encompassed a number of housing types and styles. For more information about Colonial styles, see Cape Cod, Saltbox, Georgian, and Dutch Colonial. However, when we speak of the Colonial style, we often are referring to a rectangular, symmetrical home with bedrooms on the second floor. The double-hung windows usually have many small, equally sized square panes.During the late 1800s and throughout the 20th century, builders borrowed Colonial ideas to create refined Colonial Revival homes with elegant central hallways and elaborate cornices. Unlike the original Colonials, Colonial Revival homes are often sided in white clapboard and trimmed with black or green shutters.  [wnt_grid keyid=”1″ maptype=”disabled” ownertype=”all” paginated=”true” sortoptions=”true” maxresults=”10″ search_mode=”form” primarysearchtype=”active” searchtype=”city” state=”MI” county=”Livingston” min_price=”80000″ max_price=”1000000000″ listing_status=”Active” single_family=”y” style=”Colonial” city=”Hamburg Township” condo=”y” /]

CONTEMPORARY STYLE

You know them by their odd-sized and often tall windows, their lack of ornamentation, and their unusual mixtures of wall materials–stone, brick, and wood, for instance. Architects designed Contemporary-style homes (in the Modern family) between 1950 and 1970, and created two versions: the flat-roof and gabled types. The latter is often characterized by exposed beams. Both breeds tend to be one-story tall and were designed to incorporate the surrounding landscape into their overall look.    [wnt_grid keyid=”1″ maptype=”disabled” ownertype=”all” paginated=”true” sortoptions=”true” maxresults=”10″ search_mode=”form” primarysearchtype=”active” searchtype=”city” state=”MI” county=”Livingston” min_price=”80000″ max_price=”1000000000″ listing_status=”Active” single_family=”y” style=”Contemporary” city=”Hamburg Township” condo=”y” /]

FARMHOUSE STYLE

Farmhouse design exudes the comfortable, casual feel of rural farm living. Frequently referred to as farmhouse, French country or country, this style includes traditional farmhouses with front porches, picket fences and pastures, as well as homes with small touches of farmhouse decor. In general, country home decor is simple and unfussy, with antique furniture, butcher block counters, beadboard, rocking chairs and rooster accents. French country decor, on the other hand, has the same warm, welcoming tones but with a more ornate, traditional feel.   [wnt_grid keyid=”1″ maptype=”disabled” ownertype=”all” paginated=”true” sortoptions=”true” maxresults=”10″ search_mode=”form” primarysearchtype=”active” searchtype=”city” state=”MI” county=”Livingston” min_price=”80000″ max_price=”1000000000″ listing_status=”Active” single_family=”y” style=”Farmhouse” city=”Hamburg Township” condo=”y” /]

HISTORIC STYLE

To be considered “historic,” a property must have three essential attributes:  sufficient age, a relatively high degree of physical integrity, and historical significance.

Age:  A property must be “old enough” to be considered historic.  Generally speaking, this means that a property must be at least 50 years old, although this is just a general rule of thumb.  Another way of looking at it is that a property must be old enough to have been studied by historians, architectural historians, or archaeologists so that its place in history is clear.  This latter perspective allows some types of properties that are less than 50 years old to be considered “historic.”

Integrity:  In addition to having sufficient age, a property must retain its historic physical integrity.  For a building, structure, landscape feature, historic site, or historic district, this means that the property must be relatively unchanged.  Its essential character-defining features relative to its significance must still be present.  For an archaeological site, integrity means that the site must be relatively undisturbed, with its patterns and layers of artifacts and other archaeological evidence relatively intact.  For a traditional cultural property, integrity means that the site must be recognizable to today’s affiliated cultural group, evidenced through tradition, and still used or revered in some way.

Significance:  Finally, and most importantly, a property must be significant to be considered historic.  Significance is defined in three ways:  (1) through direct association with individuals, events, activities, or developments that shaped our history or that reflect important aspects of our history; (2) by embodying the distinctive physical and spatial characteristics of an architectural style or type of building, structure, landscape, or planned environment, or a method of construction, or by embodying high artistic values or fine craftsmanship; or (3) by having the potential to yield information important to our understanding of the past through archaeological, architectural, or other physical investigation and analysis.   [wnt_grid keyid=”1″ maptype=”disabled” ownertype=”all” paginated=”true” sortoptions=”true” maxresults=”10″ search_mode=”form” primarysearchtype=”active” searchtype=”city” state=”MI” county=”Livingston” min_price=”80000″ max_price=”1000000000″ listing_status=”Active” single_family=”y” style=”Historic” city=”Hamburg Township” condo=”y” /]

RANCH STYLE

Sometimes called the California ranch style, this home in the Modern family, originated there in 1930s. It emerged as one of the most popular American styles in the 1950s and 60s, when the automobile had replaced early 20th-century forms of transportation, such as streetcars.Now mobile homebuyers could move to the suburbs into bigger homes on bigger lots. The style takes its cues from Spanish Colonial and Prairie and Craftsman homes, and is characterized by its one-story, pitched-roof construction, built-in garage, wood or brick exterior walls, sliding and picture windows, and sliding doors leading to patios.  [wnt_grid keyid=”1″ maptype=”disabled” ownertype=”all” paginated=”true” sortoptions=”true” maxresults=”10″ search_mode=”form” primarysearchtype=”active” searchtype=”city” state=”MI” county=”Livingston” min_price=”80000″ max_price=”1000000000″ listing_status=”Active” single_family=”y” style=”Manufact.

RAISED RANCH STYLE

The raised ranch is a two story house, i.e. the foundation serves as an additional floor, often called a split-level, a modification of the dominant one story design. The common result is a two-story version of a ranch-style house. It may be built into a hill to some degree, such that the full size of the house is not evident from the curb. However, it does not become a raised ranch simply by having two floors. For it to be a raised ranch, you will have to climb a flight of steps to get to the main living floor – if not it is just a bi-level house.  Even among real estate agents, this term is commonly misused.   [wnt_grid keyid=”1″ maptype=”disabled” ownertype=”all” paginated=”true” sortoptions=”true” maxresults=”10″ search_mode=”form” primarysearchtype=”active” searchtype=”city” state=”MI” county=”Livingston” min_price=”80000″ max_price=”1000000000″ listing_status=”Active” single_family=”y” style=”Raised Ranch” city=”Hamburg Township” condo=”y” /]

TOWNHOUSE

In the United States and Canada, a townhouse has two connotations. The older predates the automobile and denotes a house on a small footprint in a city, but because of its multiple floors (sometimes six or more), it has a large living space, often with servants’ quarters. The small footprint of the townhouse allows it to be within walking or mass-transit distance of business and industrial areas of the city yet luxurious enough for wealthy residents of the city.  [wnt_grid keyid=”1″ maptype=”disabled” ownertype=”all” paginated=”true” sortoptions=”true” maxresults=”10″ search_mode=”form” primarysearchtype=”active” searchtype=”city” state=”MI” county=”Livingston” min_price=”80000″ max_price=”1000000000″ listing_status=”Active” single_family=”y” style=”Townhouse” city=”Hamburg Township” condo=”y” /]

TUDOR STYLE

This architecture style was popular in the 1920’s and 1930’s and continues to be a mainstay in suburbs across the United States. The defining characteristics are half-timbering on bay windows and upper floors, and facades that are dominated by one or more steeply pitched cross gables. Patterned brick or stone walls are common, as are rounded doorways, multi-paned casement windows, and large stone chimneys. A subtype of the Tudor Revival style is the Cotswold Cottage. With a sloping roof and a massive chimney at the front, a Cotswold Cottage may remind you of a picturesque storybook home.   [wnt_grid keyid=”1″ maptype=”disabled” ownertype=”all” paginated=”true” sortoptions=”true” maxresults=”10″ search_mode=”form” primarysearchtype=”active” searchtype=”city” state=”MI” county=”Livingston” min_price=”80000″ max_price=”1000000000″ listing_status=”Active” single_family=”y” style=”Tudor” city=”Hamburg Township” condo=”y” /]

VICTORIAN STYLE

Victorian architecture dates from the second half of the 19th century, when America was exploring new approaches to building and design.  Advancements in machine technology meant that Victorian-era builders could easily incorporate mass-produced ornamentation such as brackets, spindles, and patterned shingles. The last true Victorians were constructed in the early 1900s, but contemporary builders often borrow Victorian ideas, designing eclectic “neo-Victorians.” These homes combine modern materials with 19th century details, such as curved towers and spindled porches. A number of Victorian styles are recreated on the fanciful “Main Street” at Disney theme parks in Florida, California, and Europe.   [wnt_grid keyid=”1″ maptype=”disabled” ownertype=”all” paginated=”true” sortoptions=”true” maxresults=”10″ search_mode=”form” primarysearchtype=”active” searchtype=”city” state=”MI” county=”Livingston” min_price=”80000″ max_price=”1000000000″ listing_status=”Active” single_family=”y” style=”Victorian” city=”Hamburg Township” condo=”y” /]
