    What is your favorite architectural style of home?

    Do you prefer colonial, modern, Tudor, ranch, or any number of the other styles?

    I like a combination of Stick Style, Queen Anne Style and Victorian Style.

      I will have to research more into Queen Anne style. I've heard of it, but I'm not certain if I've ever actually seen one.

    Moving to Paradise from a Northeastern State , where colonial homes were our choice, we chose to build a ranch due to the intense heat factor.
    The openness  of the way rooms flow into each other and the brightness creates  a sense of powerful good " feng shui " . Also it is very easy to maintain/entertain and of course a pool is a necessity , which is where I am presently sitting, nice night swim some Chamomile Tea, and I'll say good-night...

    Love American craftsman style homes because they remind me of painted Victorians, yet they aren't as complicated.

      I agree. Victorians are lovely, but they tend to be far too complex for my tastes.

    I love the Tiny House movement of creating smaller homes that look like little cabins.  They are cheap and irresistibly cute.  They are also eco-friendly and cut your energy costs.

    I also love Mediterranean style homes because of their light colors, courtyards, and the way they blend into a hillside.

    I like the Tudor revival style of the 1920s. I also like Colonial "Federalist" style. My least favorites are the non-definable "McHouse" and "McMansion" styles that began in the 1980s and have now taken over the outskirt subdivisions of major cities. I had to live in two of them before I decided I hated giant bathrooms with Jacuzzi tubs. Classic bathrooms were merely utility spaces set aside for discreetly doing your business, washing up and bathing. Dressing and putting on makeup were done at a vanity in the large bedroom. Today the master bathrooms (ridiculous name) are treated like the most important room in the house; fit for the "emperor" to receive and entertain guests. It's a little strange when you think about it.

    I love the colonial style because of the history and story that it represent

    Love craftsman style! With the wood beams and natural features - so rich and cozy.

    Victorian.  South London, Victorian.
    I live in a Victorian house, built at the turn of the twentieth century.
    The old lady who sold it to me had lived there since being born there, as her father had bought it when it was first built.  Hence, I am the second owner, and as she only painted where, and when, things became shabby, and didn't make any "improvements" apart from a little bomb damage  during World War II, the structure and mouldings and woodwork et cetera are all virtually intact; as when  the builder handed it over.
