Rural Gothic Villa

A Villa in the Rural Gothic style.

"We have designed this villa to express the life of a family of refined and cultivated taste, full of home feeling, love for the country, and enjoyment of the rural and beautiful in nature - and withal, a truly American home, in which all is adapted to the wants and habits of life of a family in independent circumstances." [Downing, 321-2.]
