Just a few repairs were needed, including a new white railing, on the exterior of this 1915 home in Atlanta's Candler Park neighborhood. Most of the front porch, which spans more than 56 feet, is original construction. A curved wraparound porch is unusual for American Foursquare style, but the builder apparently took the liberty to mimic the curved corner lot, says homeowner Chip Wallace, an Atlanta real estate agent who restored the home. He worked with Black Dawg Construction in Atlanta.
Depicted by a simple box shape and the large central dormer, this style of colonial home is called the Foursquare. Its full-width porch and low roof with a deep overhang are also in keeping with this post-Victorian design. The simple white and green color scheme ties into the style of the home.
This house is considered to be an American Foursquare Colonial. Its elevated construction made it an ideal choice for a French parterre garden, the house easily able to look over the garden's formal, orderly layout.
The portico of this American Foursquare craftsman home is given elegant holiday decor befitting of its classic style. Garland frames the door and the portico, while fresh pomegranates add color to the greenery.
