Colonial Revival Farmhouse Front Exterior and Yard
This home would fit in perfectly anywhere in the South, but is actually located in the suburbs of San Francisco. The owners of the custom-designed residence both have Southern roots and wanted a house for their family that felt familiar.
The five-bedroom Colonial house sits on over 17 acres of land in Litchfield, Connecticut, far away from any city hubbub. To add to the calm, the property comes with apple trees, a frog pond and mountain views.
Exterior: Pristine Georgian Colonial in Greenwich, Conn.
The beautiful eight-bedroom home, minutes from downtown Greenwich, Conn., boasts a symmetrical, rectangular shape and a formal design — hallmarks of the Georgian Colonial style. Stately white columns add sophistication to the exterior.
Symmetry is key for this colonial-inspired home exterior. Tall twin shrubs and sage-green shutters flank four windows, balancing the front of the home. An off-white portico and front door, painted the same color as the house, blend with the siding's color for subtle definition.
With 6000 square feet of living space, the house is plenty comfortable. And there's an additional 6,000 square feet in the property's top-of-the-line horse barn that includes an office, kitchen and full bathroom.
In Potomac, Maryland, this custom home makes a memorable first impression with a circular driveway wrapping around a fountain and a noble arched front door. The home itself encompasses over 13,000 square feet with five bedrooms.
The one-and-a-half acres making up this remarkable property sit on a bluff overlooking the Caribbean in St. Barts. The buildings—there are eight in all—represent the classic Caribbean architecture: white wood shingle sides topped with a green roof.
