Hidden Plainfield: Classic Center Hall in Blue


Hiding in plain sight.

As in the case of the purloined letter, today's Hidden Plainfield home is hiding right there in plain sight.

This classic center hall colonial is on a busy Plainfield street, but my hunch is many people fly by without noticing this fine example, probably built in the 1920s, in the days when fanlights and sidelights were not an extraordinary detail.

Do you know where it is?

Answer tomorrow.

I've seen it over the years, but can't place it. I won't even guess. BTW the style is colonial revival and the house could be from circa 1910. Typical is the facade that is not perfectly symmetrical.
