Let's take a southern home tour! Whether it is a historic home or new build, we love the architecture of the south. Our team member and resident photographer, Mary Miller, fills her Instagram (@glimpsesofthesouth) with beautiful southern homes that highlight their architectural details, gardens, and holiday style. She features Historic Marietta homes, Charleston homes, Downtown Woodstock homes include farmhouse style homes, cottage style and old southern mansions - we love them all!
Southern Home Tour ...
We start our southern home tour in beautiful Marietta, GA. Like many Marietta homes the Historic James T. Anderson House goes all out for the 4th! We love the classical details on this home - ionic columns, dental molding and that gorgeous wrap around porch!One thing that is consistent about southern homes is their beautiful front porches. We love the details on this one.
Pops of red and blue look wonderful against this white painted home in Marietta.
Thinking of downsizing? With its' simple design, white exterior, black front door and window boxes, this cozy cottage style home packs a lot of punch! No matter the size, Charleston homes never lack charm!
We go from small to very large on our southern home tour. Built in 1928, the Swan House mansion boasts classical architectural details with cascading fountains and curved staircases leading to the back of the home.
This new farmhouse style home has a welcoming front porch that is popping with color and decorated for the Easter season.
Christmas in Charleston is full of charm and history. In order to not detract from their architectural beauty, residents style their homes with simple decor.
Another image of Christmas in Charleston ... reminds us a bit of England with its' old world streetscapes.
Another example of a new farmhouse style home is this one located in the downtown area of Alpharetta. We are seeing lots of white painted brick, courtyards, and beautiful architectural details!
Downtown Woodstock has been growing at a rapid pace and charming new cottage style homes are popping up everywhere!
This cottage style home in Downtown Woodstock features a bright blue door, cedar porch posts and an upper level sky terrace!!!
Finishing up our Southern Home Tour in Downtown Woodstock is this sweet coastal blue home. We love the cedar shakes, window boxes with bright pink flowers and the detail on the front porch railings.
If walls could talk in these Charleston homes ... stories would be VERY interesting!
She's a beauty for sure - this Historic Marietta gem boasts fluted Corinthian columns and has a front porch that any southerner would envy!
For all you Florida Gator fans - this one is for you! The orange front door adds the nicest surprise of color!
Stay tuned for Part 2 of our Southern Home Tour coming soon!
