Features Include:

  • Basically square, boxy design (slightly greater depth than width)
  • Two-and-one-half stories high with often livable attic
  • Typically four large, boxy rooms per floor
  • Low-hipped or steep gable roof with w/deep overhang and one to four center dormers
  • Full-width front porch with wide stairs—centered or to one side
  • Brick, stone, stucco, concrete block, or wood siding
  • Large, often grouped window
  • Arched entries between common rooms
  • Built-in cabinetry, and Craftsman-style woodwork
  • Later Four squares often had the same type of interiors as Bungalows with open floor plans, lots of built-ins, and fireplaces. Many examples are trimmed with tiled roofs, cornice-line brackets, or other details drawn from Craftsman, Italian Renaissance, or Mission architecture.
