Seafood, southern hospitality, beaches, and great porches! Historic Charleston homes have universal appeal for their residential architecture.



You won't find many other places in the world where you will see beautiful front and side porches on so many different style homes.

Mary and I traveled to Charleston to bring you some unique front porch ideas. It's a fun city to explore; there's a porch around every corner and down every street! We strolled up and down almost every street in the historical district and saw some amazing porches.

If you need more porch ideas be sure to see more of our historic and turn-of-the-centuries homes.

We hope you enjoy seeing them and can glean ideas for your own front porch design!
