I don't believe it is more than a standard American builder's special, but the dark windows seem to give it a Tudor feel, and the keystones and arches are on the classic side. Garage doors feel more Craftsman to me. Typical American effort to incorporate a lot of styles under one roof. It is attractive and with proper landscaping and exterior lighting will be very nice.

that would be advertised in atlanta as a 2 story traditional. deco is right about mixed styles. the coins (side blocks) are usually reserved for stucco facades.definitely needs layers of height in landscaping to integrate it with the lot. i want to hang a very large chandelier in the portico and place potted urns on tall pedestals flanking the entry.

Thanks for the comments. We are in Canada and this was a custom built home approx 20 yrs ago. We replaced the original wood garage doors and painted around the windows. The doors were natural and the windows were grey. We are thinking of staining the brick a dark red/merlot. The brick color has not grown on us and likely wont. PLEASE keep coming with suggestions. Thanks :)
