Design XXXIII.: a picturesque villa, pp. 248-250 ff.
DESIGN XXXIII. Tins villa has been erected in the neighborhood of Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, and also at Ann Arbor, Michigan, with entire satisfaction to the gentlemanly proprietors. It contains all the apartments necessary to a refined and even luxurious mode of life, as well as the appendages requisite for the independent work- ing of the household economy, which are really indis- pensable in the country. APARTMENTs.-The hall A, fig. 141, is entered from the veranda F, and contains the main stairs. It is worthy of remark, that all the principal apartments, the kitchen included, are reached from this hall without the necessity of making a thoroughfare of any room, or passing out of doors. The drawing- room B is 18 by 31 feet, and is a fine example of a symmetrical apartment susceptible of a high style of finish. The veranda extending around three sides of it is accessible by lengthened windows, and affords a fine promenade around to the conservatory E, and to the tower situati?d at the rear of the main hall. C is a sitting-room, 18 by 25 feet, from which the conser- vatory is directly entered by a lengthened window. The dining-room D is 18 by 25 feet; the kitchen E is 22 by 24 feet, furnished with range, sink, etc. The one-story building comprises G, a bake-room, 15 by 24 (249)
