The NeoColonial Style combines attributes of the Federal and Colonial styles into a romantic vision in modern construction. The basic notion is to create a new housing style reflective of periods like Georgian, Southern Colonial, and New England Colonial with the conveniences of today's high-tech kitchens and appliances. You'll find great rooms and gabled rooflines, pairs of double-hung windows, brick exteriors or modern siding with faux brick or stone. Side porches are common, as are bay windows and shutters.
Models come in one, two, or three-story homes, with a central front door adorned with lamps and framed by columns or pillars. Revival models may echo designs from Cape Cod, Dutch Colonial, Classical, or Garrison Colonial styles all initially made popular from 1900 to 1950. Dormers and pilasters are common, as are paneled doors and overhead fan-lighting. In multi-story NeoColonials, the living area is on the first floor, with bedrooms and baths upstairs.
