I like quirky, unusual, characterful beauty when it comes to human beings, but I have to admit that I am a bit of a classicist when it comes to buildings. Much as I admire daring modern architecture, there are few things that can be better than the perfect proportions of the Greek temple, which has been the inspiration for so much of Western architecture. So here are a few symmetrical houses that I admire.

You’re so right – the Italians are amazing at this style! Beautiful 🙂
These pictures are so beautiful. It must be amazing to live in them. (minus all the cleaning)
I love that Provencal villa with its lake but the redbrick one looks more relaxed.
Symmetry and proportion are really beautiful, aren’t they, Marina Sofia? I like the house in Normandy the best, but they’re all lovely.
They’re all very stylish, though perhaps a tad too grand for me! 😀
Yep, we do love our things symmetrical!
