I'm officially in love with the design of this home in Charlotte, NC. It was built four years ago in the Charleston Single House vernacular, a 19th-century architectural style in which houses reached to the sky from a small footprint. Typically one room wide and two deep, with the narrow side facing the street. I'm mad about the gated entrance on the left side of the house that leads to a covered side porch and the "real" front door. Why haven't I ever heard of this wonderful architectural design? I even lived in South Carolina for many years in my youth.
I searched and found a firm that sells plans in case you want to build one or at least look at some floor plans. The house in the photo is featured in the Holiday 2009 issue of Traditional Home Magazine. Pick it up if you want to see more photos and read the entire article. It's not online yet, but keep looking. The wreaths in each window certainly look beautiful, don't they?
