DESCRIPTION

Although many people associate the Greek Revival style with the white, columned plantation house, simpler versions were much more typical. Pre-Civil War cottages, farmhouses, and even country stores all borrowed elements of this classic style. This plan is based on one of the common vernacular versions. A traditional two-story clapboard, it contains about 3,000 square feet of space. A front-facing gable with a cobweb fanlight echoes the pediment of the Greek temple. Corner pilasters replace the more typical (and the more costly) freestanding columns.

Inside lies a large, old-fashioned great room with beamed ceiling and traditional mantel. The kitchen features a vaulted, beamed ceiling with skylights and an island work center. It adjoins a breakfast area, which opens to a porch. The separate dining room includes a true china closet, as well as a box bay window. A combination powder room/bath allows the library to be converted into a guestroom.

Upstairs, the master bedroom features a tray ceiling and double sets of French doors, which open to a screened sitting porch. The master bath includes a large dressing area with walk-in cedar closet and separate bathtub and shower. Across the hall, two additional bedrooms share a compartment bath.

On the third level, double fan windows light the bonus space, which could be a studio, playroom, or private retreat. Greek Revival Vernacular Style was designed by G. John Baxter of Atlanta.
