The Georgian Colonial is a classic style that takes basic Colonial features and enhances them with interesting finishing touches. Look for decorative crown over the front door, dentil molding along the façade, and columns flanking the front door. The result is a style that has more grandeur and finesse than the standard Colonial. As with most Colonials, symmetry is an important feature of the Georgian Colonial, from the window placement to the positioning of the front door and the layout of the bedrooms. Many of these homes were built with medium pitched roofs, little roof overhang, and two chimneys. Side gables, hip or gambrel roofs also were common. Colonial homes typically are made of brick, while others had wood siding. Their front façade might be set off by black shutters framing the windows. The Georgian Colonial was introduced to the colonies around 1700 during the reigns of Kings George I, II, and III.
