Southern Plantation Homes
Based on the gracious antebellum manors of the deep south, Plantation house plans reflect a combination of rural practicality & Neoclassical, Greek Revival, & Italianate styles. The very picture of southern hospitality, Plantation style house plans welcome visitors with soaring columned porches & galleries that may extend across the front or wrap around all four sides of the home. Tall French windows swing in to let breezes cool the interior, while wooden shutters filter the southern sunlight.
