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.

Tall French windows swing in to let breezes cool the interior, while wooden shutters filter the southern sunlight.
