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.
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.
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.
With limited space along the front façade of this home, every space that could contain plants became a planter. Framing the house with soft edges include a Japanese Maple and a Magnolia, boxwood globes, bacopa and carex grass.
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.
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.
