Federal Colonial style homes like this one – the historic Garret Wyckoff House in Belle Mead, New Jersey – are the models for millions of homes throughout the country. It’s the quintessential early American home style.
The kitchen has tons of American colonial charm, but with lots of modern amenities! Our favorite detail is the dish rack with the lovely, colorful plates! No wait, it’s the wide-plank floors!
A bit of tile flooring saves the original wide-plank wood floors from damage. There’s a nice little bench next to the door in this sunny mudroom!
In the basement level, the thick stone walls of the foundation provide a nice, deep window sill for a plant or two in this laundry room.
That’s a classic American colonial fireplace! A nice big classical surround and a huge brick firebox!
Straight out of the history pages! Even the hat hung on the bedpost seems perfectly in place.
Sunny yellow seems like the perfect choice for this Federal Colonial style home. So glad they kept all of the original exterior details intact, it wouldn’t be the same home without them!
Seems like there’s a fireplace in almost every room of this Federal Colonial style home, and they all look like they’ve been well-used!
