"Browse Southern colonial houses for sale in Los Angeles, CA.
Southern colonial style homes draw their influence from European colonists who settled in America’s northern and southern colonies during the 1600s. It’s an Early American style that, as it evolved, the architecture aspired to the ideals of the Greek Revival movement of the late 18th and early 19th centuries. Typically made from brick, wood, stone, or a combination of all three, these homes are symmetrical, large, at least two to three stories with a colonnade across the front. The roof usually extends over the colonnade and houses a portico (front porch) underneath. Other features include paired chimneys and fireplaces on each level, a center hallway and grand staircase, and a lot of molding inside and out.
