Built in 1911, the Gustav Stickley–designed bungalow still has its original fieldstone fireplace and distinctive joinery.

This recently listed home in New Jersey is a well-preserved example of American Arts and Crafts architecture. Completed between 1909–11, the residence was designed by Gustav Stickley, an influential furniture maker and early Arts and Crafts advocate as the publisher of The Craftsman magazine. The property embodies Stickley’s philosophy, with rooms finished in American chestnut and other handcrafted features, such as a fieldstone fireplace and hearth made of original ceramic tiles.

Located within commuting distance to New York City, this early 1900s bungalow is one of two homes designed and built by Gustav Stickley in Maplewood, New Jersey.
