Our All-Time Favorite Brick House Plans – southernliving.com

Edgewood Court


Trends will come and go, but brick houses are here to stay. From Lowcountry and Craftsman to French country and Colonial, classic brick can be interpreted in almost any architectural style to fit your location and personality. If we learned anything from the “Three Little Pigs” nursery rhyme, it’s that sturdy brick houses will not only stand the test of time but also grow even more beautiful with age. Customize your brick home’s exterior with a pop of color on the front door, or overhaul the facade’s whole look with a fresh coat of paint. (Where do you stand on the great painted brick debate?) Here, we rounded up 10 timeless brick house plans that will never go out of style.
