The Deerfield Colonial is designed to reflect a style and character typical of homes built in the mid 1700’s. Its detailing is somewhat refined but still primitive when compared to the intricate detailing found on some of the homes built in the late colonial and early federal periods. The front façade is symmetrical with nine double hung windows, a center chimney and simple center doors with a transom window. The house is stretched laterally on the side elevation by the addition of an ell which contains a cathedral ceiling, mud room and garage to add interest and scale to the façade and provide cover for the side entry. This home has an open flowing floor plan with separate living and dining rooms and a centrally located kitchen that is open to the gathering room. There are fireplaces in the living room, breakfast/kitchen area and gathering room.
There are many options for exterior finish on this house. Formal homes are often painted in a white or off-white color with a slightly darker tinted color for the trim. The window sash should be painted with the same trim color or a darker “colonial” accent color. An informal “antique” look, trim is often stained with a dark black-brown color. In this case the window sash and front doors showcase bright “colonial” accent colors (barn red works well). Traditionally, the roofs should be sawn cedar or slate colored asphalt and the chimneys antique style bricks.
