Georgian Architecture

The Georgian style can be described as spacious and comfortable and is known for its formal and classic details.  The Georgian style was named after the English Kings George I, II and III whose ruling periods were from 1714-1820.   A typical Georgian house is a stone or brick two-story building with a sided-gabled roof and a symmetrical arrangement of windows and doors on the front façade.  General features of a Georgian styled home are symmetrical facade, paneled front door in the center, decorative crown over front door, five windows across front, center or paired chimneys, a center hall, 10 – 11 foot ceilings and elaborate mantels and stairways.
