Architectural Styles

The homes at Parkside of Glenview are available in four classic architectural styles.


Craftsman-style homes often have low-pitched roofs with wide eave overhangs, exposed roof rafters, decorative beams or braces under gables, and porches framed by tapered square columns. Craftsman homes often have unfinished but usable space in the attic that can offer great renovation opportunities.


Modern Farmhouse homes are known for being warm, comfortable dwellings. The white board and batten, the black window trim and the metal elements on the roof are all key elements found in modern farmhouse, as well as a beautiful porch and entry.


Common features of Shingle style elevations include a warm, storybook character, steep roof pitches and cross gables, arched doors, and brick, stone, or stucco siding.


A classic style that is well suited for large lots, the European elevation is elegant and one of a kind. You could relate it to the fairy tale houses that are almost castle-like. European elevations typically use a combination of two materials such as stone or stucco, bricks and siding.
