Pairs of traditional rockers create an inviting entryway for this pool house, beckoning guests to enjoy the comfortable living room beyond. A pillared porch, brick pavers and trellised gable are among the traditional architectural elements that ground the space and give it presence.
Cape Cod-style architecture, complete with gables, columned porches and wood shingle siding, gives this home a stately, traditional presence. Meanwhile, the red front door turns the entry into a focal point.
This Craftsman-style home has a large, inviting front porch accentuated by architectural details and woodwork. The low-pitched gabled roof, exposed beams, and stone and shingled siding are hallmarks of Arts and Crafts design.
Wide stone steps and a porch that runs the length of the house make this transitional home, beautifully lit for night, feel all the more welcoming. An unusual round turret and balcony sits between two more traditional gables.

This detailed exterior is an authentic example of the gingerbread-style Victorian. Delicate architectural detail and a multi-gabled roofline are characteristic of the style and era. White molding decorates the front porch and multiple balconies, providing subtle contrast to the pale pink exterior for added visual interest.
From this side of the garden, guests can see that the home is two-stories tall and features a wood frame structure, gable roof and two porches. Palmetto trees flank the exterior for a true South Carolina look -- all that's missing is the classic crescent moon.
Built in 2007, the shingle style Cape Cod was designed by American architect Robert A.M. Stern.

Wide covered porches wrap around the exterior of the magnificent home with waterfront views from three sides.
This once-drag bungalow is enlivened with a new gable dormer and petite front porch, turning it into a charming summer cottage with a storybook appeal. The design team added a small master suite to the original structure that provides privacy for a lush garden at the back of the house. A sage green picket fence ties in with the exterior trim and adds to the charm.
