What is this architectural style?


For years, I've been trying to figure out what THIS architectural style is called. I love the style, and see it fairly often, but all of my internet searches fail to provide me with a name for the style. Any assistance in this matter would be greatly appreciated.

Yours is a modern version of the famous 'House of the Seven Gables" New England home featured in Nathaniel Hawthorne's book published 1851. The "House of the Seven Gables' actually exists, it was built in 1668, and can be visited in Salem, Massachusetts, for a small fee. Your version is much more open and brighter and happier, but then again it is not in Salem and not inhabited by New Englanders either, right?

Also... the OP has terrible research skills.

Style? Like, in as in a hair style? It's not so much a style as an extruded plan and a sales brochure. I'd describe it as a house with another house wrapped around it, big attic on top and lick and stick concrete that is painted to look like stone. Very popular with the muffin-top crowd.

I would guess the house the OP listed is within 100 miles of Fredericksburg, Texas?

That's called the, "Damn it, I have 14 materials, and a bunch of extra columns, and I plan to use them all" style. 

It's not the worst I've seen.  But I wouldn't say it follows the general rules or trends of any particular style.  It's more a mish mash that someone threw together who didn't know enough to know better.

That house's style is called "first world problems"

"Ecclectic" a mixture of many precedents.
