Notice the comfortable informality of the New England aesthetic style structure. It’s not overly formal or symmetrical and it keeps a low profile since it is generally one and a half stories.

Other common features you will find in a Cottage Colonial Revival home are:

  • white painted shingle siding
  • simplified architectural colonel detailing
  • covered entry porches
  • cottage style windows
  • stone surfacing on the first floor
  • dark shutters with functional hardware and shutter dogs
  • large stone and a brick chimney (so Santa can get down it easily)

Most Cottage Colonial Revival homes have white painted shingle exteriors. This simplified architectural detailing can be seen in the image above. Notice the swept rooflines for a classic colonial style.
