New House Built with American Gothic Revival StyleRemember the Practical Magic-inspired kitchen I showed you last week? I thought you might like to see the rest of this amazing Gothic Revival house. It was designed by Derek of Derek M Design, who says his clients wanted a new house with an old soul. I think he pulled it off. If you drove past this house, would you guess that it was finished last year?

New House Built with American Gothic Revival Style“It has truly fooled some people, ” Derek says. “The greatest compliment I have gotten so far is when a member of a local historic society asked what year the home was built, and I shocked her with the year 2007-2009. She honestly thought is was a renovation project of a house built in 1860.”

This pretty blue room reminds me of the “morning room” in :

How fabulous is this window with the interior shutters?

Here’s the kitchen I showed you last week. You can see the rest of the photos and see side-by-side comparisons with the Practical Magic kitchen that it was inspired by here.

If you could build a new house with the character and spirit of an old one, what style and era would you go for?
