Characterized by signature features such as high ceilings and open porches with columns adorning the entrance, Southern style house plans with two stories provide owners with a sense of style and functionality that evokes the pre-Civil War era of the American South. These house plans, sometimes referred to as plantation homes, trace their origins back to the houses built on actual southern plantations, exemplify many of the most common and recognizable features of Southern and Country style homes, and are popular in areas like Virgina, North Carolina, Tennessee, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, and Mississippi.

In addition to the open entryways, which often have round or square columns stretching across the space, these home plans also feature porches made out of wood and include sloped rooflines that frequently feature dormers and gables—allowing for extra bits of space in the rooms located on the second floor or in the attic.

Southern style house plans with two stories are designed to accommodate the warm and often humid climates of the South, hence the high ceilings that help to mitigate the high temperatures during the summer months. As a result, these homes impart a sense of grandness and classical style that lend themselves to vintage décor and more traditional interior designs.

The second story typically consists of additional bedrooms, sometimes a third or fourth in larger homes, but may also include one or more bathrooms. The home plans give off a sense of comfort as well as elegance, encouraging the gathering of friends and family both inside and out. Certain types of Southern style home plans with two stories may also feature some attic space above the second story bedrooms, while many also feature attached garages and large yards front and back.
