Today’s Top 5

Convertible Porch

It appears from the roof and the paint remaining on the front of the house that there was, at one time, a two-story porch on the front of the building. Probably with the typical columns. Years of neglect probably lead led to it's its eventual demise.

Another Good Selling Point

"Open, airy floor plan with neutral and natural colors throughout!"

1830s antebellum

These are beautiful houses when restored. The layout of this particular design is very familiar to me. The rooms are large and spacious, with high ceilings and tall windows. Designed to stay cool in the Southern heat!

I notice that the house and roof lines have remained straight even though open to the weather -- a testament to the quality construction. This one is a keeper. I wonder, did it survive?

Fixer upper / handyman’s dream

Close to shopping and great schools.

Four-Star Title

Although "Rake's Progress" remains my personal favorite.
