We have rowhouses in Richmond, but they don't quite look like that. Most of them have large white columns in front and big front porches and verandas.

here's what they look like:

Louisville actually has a few rowhouses, and of course several urban hoods where the homes nearly touch each other. The housing stock in Louisville looks much different from Cincinnati and St Louis, two river cities nearby with more row houses. Cincinnati has a ton of rowhouses in Over the Rhine.

I was refering to the rows, as they were described here. Houses in SF are, indeed, fancier.

Do you have any pictures? I looked on Google and all I could find were DC and places like that.

Here is a nice link of Albany, New York with some good photos of row houses. Are you planning on relocating, or just researching row houses? Actually, I grew up in one in Buffalo, New York, but not a fancy one -- old military homes that were changed to residential after World War II.

This is a nice link, though:

Good luck!

You can find very similar rows in Maine

yup.

SF is all over those colors, but definitely not that kind of design.

St Louis has several neighborhoods with row houses, as a matter of fact, there are some across the street from my house.

I know this thread is quite old, but... I don't think there are that many places in the U.S. with exactly the same kind of colorful clapboard rowhouses as in Atlantic Canada.

Architecturally speaking, New England is closest, but most of the colorful clapboard homes are not rowhouses. A few examples:










On the other hand, places like San Francisco and the Georgetown area of Washington DC have a lot of colorful rowhouses, but these are either not clapboards or of a very different architectural style.

Possibly the closest you will find is Annapolis, MD. The architecture is not as heavily dominated by clapboard as in New England or the Atlantic Provinces, but the houses in the old part of town tend to be connected (or close to it) and there is a lot of color.
