Small bracketed villa
Designed expressly for Godey’s Lady’s Book by Samuel Sloan, Architect, Philadelphia
This little villa, so picturesque in appearance, would make a very appropriate residence for a family of moderate size.
The round-headed windows and porch arcades architecturally forbid the use of such a pitch as the main roof has; but it will be seen that this piquancy is obviated by the truncation of the latter, thereby agreeably subduing the otherwise discord and composition.
First floor: Ample hall, fine drawing room, dining room, kitchen, library.
Second floor contains five very good chambers, and a number of appendages, such as closets, etc. rarely found in a dwelling of this magnitude.
