This home's black wrought iron railing and banister enhance the entryway without blocking the look of the brick exterior and columned front porch. The porch, which has a curved portico, was created by Atlanta Decking & Fence.
Bold-white structural details on the portico of this ranch home define its contemporary style. Subtle colors allow the columns on the porch to take center stage while simple, glass-paned windows break up the gray siding color.

White columns wrapped at the bases with stone and soft-blue siding come together beautifully on the exterior of this coastal-inspired home. Walkway landscaping and a covered entryway with traditional white columns create inviting curb appeal.
From the comfortable chairs of this Santa Barbara covered patio, you can see the beautiful landscape design of Mark Scott and Associates that continues the home's Mediterranean theme. Stepping stones were laid in the grass, with a garden planted and bordered a few feet beyond the green space. The look is stately, serene and symmetrical in a most interesting way.
There isn't a bad view from this bayside home, but the deck above the driveway portico offers the best sweeping views of the property. A grass-lined drive leads to the detached garage behind the house.
Red is a frequent choice for homes with a traditional look, fitting with brick, molding and columns painted white. "The old-fashioned, welcoming color for a front door is red," says Bruce Holliday of Landscape Plans Plus.
The approach to this mansion is honestly breathtaking, as magnolia trees seem to part and reveal a huge portico and soaring stone columns. A low-level brick retaining wall adds some definition to the front yard.
