House architecture

I was wondering if anyone knows what our new/old house style is.

I thought it was Dutch Colonial revival esque. The house was built in 1909. The house has no Dormers.

Thanks for any input!!

What little you show of it is Dutch Colonial.

I'm no expert, but my amateur opinion is also Dutch Colonial. Congratulations on your new/old house! Hope you enjoy it! I admire your back garden and landscaping!

RE: House architecture

Thanks! Although I take no credit in the Landscaping. The previous owner was gracious enough to provide it for us! Now all we have to do is maintain it.

RE: House architecture

My guess would be Dutch Colonial as well. Very nice home and garden! Enjoy it.
ps I always get a chuckle from Dutch Colonial cuz people are inclined to call our home that when in fact we have that shape only because the frame of the main part of the house was made from an old barn with that shape (in the 1920s).
