The Gordon Van Tine 603 is an example of distinction in the practical residence. I have two examples to share in this blog.
This Gordon Van Tine home was first offered in the first ready cut catalog in 1916 as model number 564. It would be offered in not ready cut in 1921 as Number 717. In 1923 it was offered as ready cut and the number changed to 603. In 1928 Gordon Van Tine changed from numbers to names and it became the Montclair until 1931. In 1932 the name was changed yet again to the Peyton and it was discontinued after 1936. Having been offered for 10 years I am sure there are several lurking out there just waiting to be discovered!

I found this Gordon Van Tine 603 in Dixon Illinois several years ago.
And here is that signature linen closet that I came to recognize! Or, is that just my knee jerk reaction? LOL
I was able to find a real estate listing later and seeing the inside sealed the deal!
Many of the Gordon Van models call for a linen closet. The specifications and the plan show that the 603 has a linen closet. Here is an example of that linen closet from my 1924 catalog.
The Gordon Van Tine 603 included kitchen case “C”. You can see the components of the kitchen case “C” in this
1924 Gordon Van Tine catalog.
Thanks to that real estate listing we get a good look at an intact Gordon Van Tine kitchen case “C’! How about that!
It’s always nice when we can see the back view and thanks to the real estate listing we have a great view of the back of a Gordon Van Tine 603!
This Gordon Van Tine 603 is across the street from the Gordon Van Tine 639 in Chatham New Jersey. We saw it a few days ago.
