The "Angora" House Plan
Sweaters made of angora or mohair were new, popular, affordably luxurious, and very "now" in the mid-twentieth century. The cozy, affordable "Angora" house imitates the Georgian Colonial and the Georgian Colonial Revival house styles.
Why is this a Neocolonial style?
- Inspired by a colonial style, but without rigid adoption
- Side gabled roof
- Two stories
- Different exterior siding delineating first floor from second floor
- Decorative shutters
- Modern features, such as the garage and a variety of window styles. The window in the stairway is a smaller version of the design found in the "Modern Expance" floor plan.
