725 Greenleaf in Glencoe

You’ll love the fabulous location in East Glencoe; so close to train, town and beach.  This French Eclectic style, French Provincial or French Chateau styled home, was a common home building choice in the 1920s and 1930s. The style was utilized most often in residential architecture and emerged from an increased knowledge of French architecture and an appreciation for French cultureThe French Eclectic style is rectangular in plan and symmetrical in design, and is at least one-and-a-half stories in height. The main distinguishing characteristic of the style is a massive hip roof with its ridge paralleling the front of the house. The roof incorporates a second floor, which is typically lit by the addition of several dormers. Most of these dormers have segmental or hip roofs, although shed dormers can be found. Commonly, the dormers are located within the plane of the exterior wall and incorporate larger than normal windows.Exterior cladding can be of brick, stucco or clapboard.  More information HERE.
