1927: Cottage Style

Model House of 1927This house is a rather streamlined version of a cottage style. The extension of the street-facing gable nearly to the ground on one side and forming the roof of the portecochere on the opposite side, is a unique feature. The triangular-topped opening of the porte-cochere matches the outline of the dramatic picture window.

This house was built as a “model home.” In the spring of 1927, the Chamber of Commerce organized a cooperative construction of this house to promote home buying in Fullerton. The home was opened in September with much fanfare. In spite of its status as a model home, none other like it was ever built in Fullerton.
