Eclectic Vernacular House, Scotland

The style of this house is vernacular, but that’s where a simple definition ends for me. It’s one of the most unique houses I can think of in South Georgia. The hand-scalloped enclosed-arch porch posts hint at a Spanish Eclectic and Mediterranean/Italian influence, but might better be described as eccentric.

    I believe it looks a bit like English country. I do like the tin roof. Looks like a house I would love to live in.

    My guess is that the original construction was a post on the the brick column. In the 1920s and 1930s, when arched architecture was so pervasive the arches were added, as evidenced by the posts still being visible in the column.

    Possibly the most unique house you have photographed.

  4. I love this one! I have never seen anything quite like it so I guess “Eccentric” is a good description.
