You may recognize this charming facade from AMC’s hit show The Walking Dead—but did you know it was built from a Southern Living House Plans design?

Residential Designer: Suzanne Stern
Size: 2,488 square feet
Plan Name: Salisbury Court, #1884; houseplans.southernliving.com

Why We Love It: This Southern vernacular exterior hides a breezy, modern floor plan full of casual living space. And the louvered shutters aren’t just pretty—they work. “They’re one of those things that add authenticity and charm and really make a big difference, even if you can’t quite put your finger on why,” says residential designer Suzanne Stern. The Walking Dead team didn’t make many alterations to the home—or to the six other Southern Living House Plans homes featured on the show, shot in Senoia, Georgia. “They’re really well-designed houses, so we just stuck with the colors and finishes in the plans,” says the show’s production designer Grace Walker.

The Wow Factor: That wraparound porch! This floor plan was originally created for a small corner lot, which meant that the facade had to impress from the front and side. The corner “tower” provides visual interest on two sides of the exterior, and its flanking double-hung windows allow unobstructed views and abundant natural light.
