I think this is one of the most charming porches I've ever seen. It's in Branford Connecticut, across the street from the ocean.
In Charleston, the porches are built down the sides of the homes because of some sort of property tax that was assessed by how long the street side of the house was. Thus, there is often a little gate to the long side porch at the street. Since its hot as Hades down there in the summer, you can see whey they needed two levels of porch.
I love the stone, rough hewn wood and tin roof in this vernacular Texas Hill County cottage.
The massing of this home and the welcoming front porch is very pleasing. I'm guessing it has the square footage of a McMansion, but there is nothing McMansion about its style.
Wicker and porches go hand in hand.
This wood and view are stunning.
I have a feeling this is a back porch, but I had to throw it in here anyway. Beautiful stone, wide open views and a fire - what a great spot!
