Florida Cracker Architecture
Traditional homes in Florida were often built along the ‘Cracker’ style. This design theme, originating in the state in the 19th century, included many ideas and features that were suitable to the warm and relaxed South, including:
- Raised floors to keep the home up off of the ground
- Large porch areas, often running around the sides or all the way around the house
- Long central hallways that cut right through the home
- Lots of large windows and doors to allow air through for cooling
While architecture themes come and go, the traditional Florida Cracker house style remains very popular today. The wide, low and rambling style has been updated with many modern features and can include large bedrooms with private baths, open-concept kitchens that open onto living and dining areas and garages for added convenience and storage.
Our designers have come up with a great collection of homes inspired by the architecture and style of historic homes as well as more modern versions of this well-loved style.
