[drawing]:detailed diagram of the Neo-Dutch Colonial Style

The most predominant feature of the Neo-Dutch Colonial Style is a gambrel roof, often with flared eaves. However, this type of roof could also be found on Shingle, Arts and Crafts (English Revival) and Neo-Georgian Style homes. The entrances to Neo-Dutch Colonials were often classical, borrowed from the Georgian Styles, as were the shutters and windows with small panes. Clapboard or brick with wooden shingles in the dormer were common building materials with the latter being more prevalent in Detroit. Neo-Dutch Colonial residences can be found in the Boston-Edison, Arden Park and Berry Historic Districts.
