Neo-Georgian Homes

18th century England embraced Italian Renaissance design. Likewise, the 13 English Colonies looked to the homeland for modern design. Only the wealthy would own these large palatial homes. The design was balanced, and included large rooms suitable for warm fireplaces and cooking areas. In the North, many of these homes were built of wood, whereas in the South they were constructed of red brick. Many popular designs included a hip or gable roof and later included Greek Style columns. The Georgian name came not from the region of construction, but as a namesake of King George I-IV.
