What Houzz contributors are saying:

Front porch. An impressive tree-lined driveway and the biggest front porch possible are key elements of plantation style.
Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Timeline of American House Styles
... houses in the South developed wraparound verandas to shade the interiors and tall windows to let in breezes: a tradition that continues today.
One distinctive Lowcountry design move that never goes out of style is a raised first floor. "The first floors were raised off the ground to keep out the floodwaters and to allow breezes to circulate under the house," explains Frederick.
Rachel Grace added this to Tidewater Homes
Located on a bluff in Charleston, this tidewater home is designed for wet, hot climates.
Or is it a more formal language, a symmetrical home with a deep-set porch and an elevated main level?
