which type of house is most suited for your lifestyle

When dreaming of a new home there’s usually an emphasis placed on the features it will hold within its walls… but architectural style is a factor that’s just as important! You will have to see the outside of your house on a daily basis; with this being the case you should definitely take its exterior design into consideration.

Viewing a home is a time-consuming process, so it’s important that you determine what it is you prefer when it comes to architectural style. By determining what you are looking for (and equally important, what you are not), time will be saved once you reach the viewing step, as you will be able to toss homes aside that aren’t aligning with your vision.

While it is recommended that you give potential homes a chance (you never know when one will surprise you), external factors can definitely narrow the search, making it easier for you to embark on your new home buying journey. When looking for a home in Middle Tennessee you have a number of options to choose from when it comes to architectural style.  


A luxurious, historic style of home, usually located on multiple acres of land.  


A smaller, space-efficient home. Larger verandas generally characterize this style.


A house that is up to date with the current trends. These homes often have large windows, use unique materials, and have high-tech features.

Cape Cod

Steep roofs and symmetry characterize the simple exterior of this home.

American Foursquare

These homes are characterized by their boxy appearance, with wide front porches and stairs. They have a center dormer and stand two-and-one-half stories tall.  

These are just a few of the styles of homes one can set their sights on in and around Middle Tennessee.
