This charming house is the across the street neighbor from last week's house of the week. Of course I like it - it's white and has black shutters. I love the way the front porch detail mirrors that of the windows. I think this is either Greek Revival or Colonial Revival. I lean more towards Greek Revival because of the wide band of trim at the cornice line. Any of you architects out there please weigh in...
From A Field Guide to American Houses, identifying features of a Greek Revival house:
Gabled or hipped roof of low pitch; cornice line of main roof and porch roofs emphasized with wide band of trim; most have porches supported by prominent square or rounded columns, typically Doric style... p179.
But it could also be Colonial Revival. From the same book the identifying features of Colonial Revival:
Accentuated front door, normally with decorative crown (pediment) supported by pilasters or extended forward and supported by slender columns to form entry porch; doors commonly have overhead fanlights or sidelights; facade normally show symmetrically balanced windows and center door; windows with double hung sashes...p. 321.
Which style do you think it is?
