Have you ever stopped to wonder what goes through the mind of an architect when she designs a house? Sometimes you see a home with great curb appeal and you wish you could live there. Other times you walk down the street and an ugly ducking of a house pops out and you wonder why anyone would design a structure like that. I’ve always been fascinated with architecture and the thought process that went into the design. Here are 13 houses with great curb appeal that I think you might enjoy.
This classic historic beauty has an ample porch, charming dormers, and just the right amount of decorative trim. Window frames are given a two-tone paint treatment that provides definition.
