Not to be confused with the Southern Colonial homes, which are very long and flat, these dwellings tend to have more styling with a brick masonry lower half and a wooden plank upper half. Here are two different styles below:
Modern Colonial: Clean lines, high sloped roofing with contemporary elements
Ranch Colonial: Long & wide dwellings with many windows of different shapes/sizes
