As was typical of European settlers of all regions, Dutch settlers in New York, New Jersey, Delaware & western Connecticut brought their familiar architecture with them.
The Dutch Colonial homes were characterized by gambrel roofs with curved eaves, double-hung sash windows, and outward swinging wood shutters, these charming homes were originally designed with only one room (try selling that to a family of 4…).
Besides what I just mentioned, Dutch Colonials varied wildly in form. During the late 1800’s they had a very Victorian flare, while after 1900 their design contained more classical elements.
We see this style in D/FW from time-to-time. In fact, there are a couple on the M-Streets that were originally tudors that have been retrofitted to bear the appearance of a Dutch Colonial. I’ve also seen quite a few in Cochran Heights.
