Dutch Colonial Style Homes in Washington DC Metro Area

While Dutch Colonial homes in Washington Metro represent one of the smallest market segments, they are also one of the most interesting and historically significant styles. Early Dutch settlers established a large east coast area known as New Netherlands as far back as 1602. By the 1620's colonists were building in the Hudson River Valley in what eventually became known as New York State. Early homes were small and crafted from stone with sharply pitched roofs. Larger brick homes began emerging later in the same century. The distinctive gambrel roofs and overhangs weren't widely adopted until around 1720 and drew from English influences.

Early Dutch Colonial architecture was rare in the Washington Metropolitan area. Although there was a Dutch trading presence along the Potomac along with some Dutch colonists brought in to help improve the Jamestown settlement, a divide grew as King James sought to keep his English colonies isolated. Trends change over time of course. The 1700's brought a further cross-pollination of Colonial design and the late 1800's ushered in the Colonial Revival period, melding numerous influences in an effort to create a new nationalistic identity.

Dutch Colonial Style Homes in Washington DC Metro AreaOne of the more popular subtypes within the Revival movement was the Dutch Colonial Revival. Over time, the popular term reverted back to the shorter Dutch Colonial. From 1908 to 1940, the highly popular Sears Modern Homes, also known as Craftsman homes, were sold in kit form and featured a much wider array of styles than most people realize. Sears relied on customers to supply new suggestions and blueprints for emerging models and Dutch Colonial design accounted for numerous models including the Amsterdam, the Cheltenham, the Martha Washington and the Van Jean. According to Sears, a number of these Dutch-style kit homes made their way to the metropolitan area including a Martha Washington model built in DC and featured in the company's 1919 catalog.

All these years later, Dutch Colonial homes in Washington Metro are still a part of the landscape. They are readily identifiable with their sloping gambrel roofs, dormers, parapets, ornate gables and other distinct detailing. These coveted homes are scattered throughout the metropolitan area with a concentration in parts of Maryland such as Chevy Chase and Gaithersburg. While listings typically range from the high-six to low-seven figures, there are sometimes lower-priced opportunities including bungalow versions and even Dutch Colonial townhouses.
