Also Beverly Crest. Saussy Burbank is a builder that builds a lot of homes in this style. And Cunnane has been as well.

There are homes very similar in style to this available in Stowe Manor and Eagle Park (both in Belmont).

If your parents buy it, do you think they'd let me live on their verandas? That is one truly beautiful home!

Baxter Village in Fort Mill, SC just south of Charlotte. Lower taxes and only 25 mins from uptown Charlotte.

My neighbors house was just reduced, it is about 35,000 under what it should be as, so if she is looking for a steal she might want to check it out.

Does anyone know any areas with homes like this? Are they always called Charleston style?

Thanks

Neither one of these homes are Charleston-style homes. That is a term that is routinely mis-used by the building and development community. The name "Charleston" implies history and class, and so they slap that name on anything that vaguely resembles the architecture of the colonial south.

Charleston-style homes are very narrow 2+ story urban houses that do not have front yards - they typically have a small side yard, and a 2nd-story porch that overlooks the side yard. They are known for having a very peculiar front door; rather than leading into the house, it leads to the 1st-story side porch.

The first link, I don't know, I've seen those called "Lowcountry style" homes before. I've also seen them called "Plantation style" homes. I want to say it is also referred to as Georgian, but I am no expert on that.

The second group, I believe is Victorian or Italianate? They are the dominant style in downtown Wilmington.
