Villa for Mrs. John Davies Jones
Bar Harbor, ME, 1892

This cottage was an early significant commission for Savage. This very large revival style house originally had a tile roof and stucco exterior and is located on the shore in Bar Harbor.

These elevations contrast each other. The entry facade (land side) is more formally rendered; note the windows, while the facade facing the water is rendered more playfully and cartoonish with an indication of curtains and drapes in the windows.
This technique reappears in other Savage elevation studies.

This cottage survives in Bar Harbor.
