Made popular in New England during the 1600s, the saltbox house has become a big part of the area’s history. According to Wikipedia, the saltbox”style of house with a long, pitched roof that slopes down to the back, generally a wooden frame house. A saltbox has just one story in the back and two stories in the front. The flat front and central chimney are recognizable features, but the asymmetry of the unequal sides and the long, low rear roof line are the most distinctive features of a saltbox.” Although this design may seem dated to many, and is certainly not as common as it once was, there are many saltbox houses still standing, and many modern homes that borrow pieces of the design. If you love beautiful architecture, then you’ll definitely be able to appreciate these lovely historic homes. Take a look at 10 classic and beautiful saltbox house designs.
