20 Charming Southern Homes That Make Us Want to Move

Escape your tiny apartment with this collection of homes, and delight in southern charm at its finest.

You might live in a swanky urban condo or in a tiny townhouse, but let’s be real: we all secretly wish we lived in a country cottage oozing with southern charm. From the great, dusty prairies of Texas, to the marshy wetlands of South Carolina, homes all over the south offer their own unique, regional appeals. However, there’s just something special about white columns and wide porches that call our hearts home.

Do yourself a favor and take a moment to live out your domestic fantasy with this collection of charming southern homes. You might just pack up everything you own and skip town tonight.
