    French Provincial? The front facade is very obviously Palladian-inspired, so I’d say it’s more Italian than French. I actually don’t mind the front facade, but the eagle in the central pediment is a mistake. The back of the house and the interior don’t excite me at all.

      exactly what I was going to say about the style and the eagle within the pediment!

        the architecture firm agrees with us as well:

    Yikes. It looks like they were on the right track with the facade but the rest is terribly cheap. The planning is downright horrible. It looks like they forgot to put a path in for the dining room…why would you squeeze the entry in a corner like that, right next to another entry?

      That’s what your mother said, Daniel.

    Yikes! I grew up in Columbus GA and couldn’t wait to make my escape. This house reminds me why! (Although if you have to live in that city, this subdivision — Green Island Hills — is the place to do it.)

    I was at the edge of my seat waiting with baited breath to see what I was in for. Sadly, the first pic was the only one that excited me. The interiors aren’t bad per se, but they do have a cheap-ish look to them. Also, the furnishings are a travesty. Why would anyone buy or build a house like this and furnish it with cast offs and random ramshackle pieces? It seems like the owner was really clueless to the style and believes it is French Provincial.

    I love it. Who would ever have thought the words “Classic Palladian” and “Chatahoochie River” would ever have been used together? The facade is great, love what the architect did. Took a lot of balls to stay this true to form, and while the eagle may seem over the top, it fits. Then they went and stuck a typical suburban Mcmansion interior in it. The interior is terrible. The cliche double height living room with balcony, the bland ceilings and walls. I might hire the architect for a facade and bring in consultants on the interior design.
