New House Style Added to the MLS

This week, a new style was added to the “style” pick-list in both the Residential and Multi-family property type – Foursquare.

The American Foursquare or American Four Square (American 4 Square) is an American house style popular from the mid-1890s to the late 1930s.  The hallmarks of the style include a basically square, boxy design, two-and-one-half stories high, usually with four large, boxy rooms to a floor (with the exception of the attic floor, which typically has only one or two rooms), a center dormer, and a large front porch with wide stairs. The boxy shape provides a maximum amount of interior room space, to use a small city lot to best advantage. Other common features included a hipped roof, arched entries between common rooms, built-in cabinetry, and Craftsman-style woodwork. (courtesy of Wikipedia).

Thank you to Paul Harsch for recommending this change.
