Lakeside Cottage Architecture pt. 8

These are NOT Ross Hips

The Ross Hips, pt. 1

This large gracious hip roof cottage has been in the Brucken family for many years. Back in the mid-1970s our children played together when we rented a 19th century style cottage on 2nd. Although it shares a parking access court with all the Ross Hips that face Perry Park, it was not built and owned by W.D. Ross. However, it does have two "sisters" facing Central Park which in the last decade were extensively updated and remodeled (3rd floor living area added). Bob tells me that he used to be able to walk in those two middle cottages in this photo and know exactly where every door, window and electric outlet was, because the three sister homes had identical plans.
