If you're looking to build a house, there's some great floor plans and architectural notes though.
The homes are presented fully furnished and decorated. So the look is highly finished. I'd love for them to have included bare wall photos so you could see the spaces without the improvements of the all the coordinated furnishings.
There are 16 finished homes highlighted. 14 of them have floor plans. There are three "On the Board" projects, two homes (floor plan & elevation sketches), and a golf resort with artist renderings and an overall site plan. No actual floor plans.
So basically there are 18 (NOT 20) "Beautiful Homes Inspired By Old World Architecture."
I deduct one star, because the authors can't count--and it is a marketing lie. Not a deception, an outright lie.
The book is heavily photographic. Every page contains large and full page photos or a color floor plan.
There is repetition amongst the designs, and you can see some style choices repeating. The open run from kitchen to dining to living/great room appears in multiple plans. But you can also see the variances they introduce unique bits to each.
Overall, I love the look and character of these homes.
In case you are wondering... Homes & Courtyards (28, nope 27, Beautifully Designed Homes For Outdoor Living) doesn't contain any repetitions. They feature homes from some of the same communities, with the same style, but they are different residences.
