Inside a Colonial Revival!

This gambrel-roofed brick Georgian house in New Hampshire was built in 1901. Its classical massing and stately portico are clearly meant to impress. Through a fanlight-topped entry door, the visitor encounters a two-storey hall, the stairs elegantly surrounded by Tuscan columns and a low, panel wainscot. Off the hall, however, cozy Arts and Crafts rooms recall the neo-medievalism favored by such English reformers as William Morris and CFA Voysey.
