Common Can Be Special

The most common house style in central Connecticut is probably the center entrance colonial.  There must be tens of thousands, many of them white.  It is a very straightforward design, very functional, with  little embellishment.

They all have a central hall, with the living room on one side and the dining room on the other.  The kitchen is behind the dining room.  Upstairs, there are two to four bedrooms.

The top house is lovely, built in the 1920s or 1930s. 

The second house is smaller and simpler, probably from the 1960s.

The last house is an older house, probably dating to the 1700s.  With animals in front.

And I would take the first one. Common can be nice.

It's a lovely style I'm used to see on movies only as I've never been there. Love the contrast to the modern cows on the bottom shot.
