Please help me identify the style of my 1914 home?

Howdy,
I'm having a difficult time identifying my house style, if there is one. On the inside there are many details that look like Arts and Crafts, but the outside looks more like Colonial revival. Any insight is greatly appreciated. The file attached is how it looks now.

Thanks,
m

It's located in Alameda, California, Bay Area.

It's been too remuddled to tell/ Try to find an old photo and you can see what it looked like in 1910, because that ain't it. The tripartite "Chicago" windows are newer, the eave-less roof in newer, etc.
It may have been a Late-Victorian one-story cottage that received an entirely new second floor addition in the post-war period.

Interestingly, I got an email telling me it reminded the emailer of an English arts and crafts architect called CFA Voysey.

Why don''t you post a photo of your 1914 house style so that it is easier to identify.
