What is a GEORGIAN style home?

By

A very brief description to help you identify a "Georgian" style home... 

They say Georgian style homes are befitting of a king. The reason...this style of home is named for four King Georges of England. Bet you didn't know that! Georgian homes feature paired chimneys and a decorative crown over the front door.

Modeled after the more elaborate homes of England, this style dominated the British colonies in the 1700s. Most surviving Georgians have side-gabled roofs, are two to three stories high, and are constructed in brick. One of the most distinctive features of a Georgian home is the row of five windows across the second story. Modern-day builders often combine features of the refined Georgian style with decorative flourishes from the more formal Federal style.
