Post Medieval English homes, designed in the 17th Century, were built around the symmetry that characterized many Colonial homes of that time. They featured an evenly placed hall and parlor that dominated the interior floor plan. This Colonial style also has a chimney centered in the building and rooms on each side.
On the outside, one of the most distinguishing characteristics is the second story that hangs every so graciously over the first story. This feature is for decoration, as the space is not wide enough to be functional. Many of these Colonial homes have a masonry veneer on the lower level that adds some architectural interest.
The front of the house is decorated with a small porch or roof overhang that frames the front door. Post Medieval English homes are an offshoot of the classic Colonial, adding some unique details to set a different tone.
