Classic Craftsman-Style Cottage With Coastal Designs
This 4,000 sq. ft. coastal retreat features a classic blue Craftsman-style exterior with cedar-inspired shingles, dormer windows and tapered entryway columns. Two copper outdoor lights are placed above the two-car garage with a fun weather vane at the top of the home.
Breezy, Coastal Front Porch With Turquoise Ceiling
Sand and sea come to mind when gazing at the exterior of the HGTV Smart Home 2013. Located in Jacksonville, Fla., the home is full of coastal character: turquoise accents, tropical landscaping and a large front porch. The palm tree detail on the porch railing adds a touch of whimsy to the home's entrance.
No shortage of curb appeal in this charming home in the southern California coastal town of Corona del Mar. Its blue exterior gets fresh white trim. Big windows, balconies and patios make the most of its outdoor space.
Coastal Home With Gray Exterior and Bright White Trim
A cool color palette perfectly suits this beach home. Blue-gray siding is accented with thick white window frames, columns and trim. Covered porches on the first and second floor add depth to the exterior and create a space to enjoy the ocean air in any weather.
The exterior façade of HGTV Smart Home 2013 pays homage to classic shingle architectural style with a wide front porch and fiber cement siding designed to mimic the look of cedar or cypress shakes. Planted between the picket fence and the front porch to draw attention, needle palm will grow to a height of 4-1/2 feet and provide needed massing in the landscape.
One of Cobb Architects' goals was to make this home feel as connected and low to the ground as possible while still achieving the appropriate level of protection above the high flood zones in Charleston, S.C. The home achieves this with a unique yet beautiful proportion that keeps it safe and protected.
