This delightful house captures elements of both the Creole cottage, with its informal plan focused around a front porch, and the high style of a southern plantation home, with its elegant details and formality.

This classic southern design, with its entry hall stretching from the front to the back of the house, connecting 2 spacious porches, could very easily be adapted to modern living. The rear wing would make an excellent farmhouse kitchen, a place for the family to gather, opening directly onto the back porch. The ground floor also has space to spare for a guest bedroom / home office and a bath. The attic is more than spacious enough to accommodate 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.
