1st Place: Craftsman

Craftsman style house

$375,000, Canton, GA. 6 BR, 4 BA, 4,196 sq. ft., built in 2004
AGENT: Ursula Dahle, Keller Williams Realty Platinum Partners

Craftsman homes became popular in the early 1900s as architects began to emphasize humble materials and handmade elements. “The extended eaves, muted colors, and earthy materials, like brick, help these homes blend into the landscape, which people love,” says Curb Appeal’s John Gidding. “No surprise it won!”

2nd Place: Victorian

Victorian style house

$268,700, Lehighton, PA. 7 BR, 3 BA, 4,655 sq. ft., built in 1884
AGENT: John Ebeling, Prudential Patt White Real Estate

“People who love color and decoration love Victorians,” says Gidding. “The ornamental style became fashionable in the late 19th century. Because they’re rich with detail, the houses look expensive, even when they’re not,” says Gidding. Talk about making a good impression!

3rd Place: Mediterranean

Mediterranean style house

$999,000, Naples, FL. 4 BR, 3.5 BA, 3,628 sq. ft., built in 2007
AGENT: Aldee Rosenberg, Coldwell Banker

With big outdoor spaces, terra-cotta roofs, stucco exteriors, and arched windows, this style, which hit its stride in the Southwest and Florida in the 1920s and ’30s, shouts seaside elegance. “Mediterranean homes are glamorous but also need little maintenance and are incredibly sturdy,” Gidding says.

  2. The Victorian House is my choice, I believe at the time they were built they looked great and expensive and today there is no difference they still are rich looking yet with grace and poise.
