Project: J. Jacob Hubbard Residence (1925)
Location: Miami, Florida
The best example of early 1920’s Belvedere Bungalow in the City of Miami. The bungalow retains its original configuration and all historic finishes. The J. Jacob Hubbard Residence embodies distinguishing characteristics of the Belvedere Bungalow style, including intersecting gabled roof planes, wide overhanging eaves, exposed rafter ends, beams, decorative timbers, casement windows with Prairie style light configurations, and a second-story belvedere. The prominent front porch, which extends across the east elevation, features flared oolitic limestone piers topped with concrete caps and short wood post supports. The entire structure is covered with wood shingles, a typical characteristic of the style.
