Nothing is more American than red, white and blue and apple pie, but when considering American home styles the Colonial architectural style has been a staple of American architecture for centuries.
In a MSN Real Estate article on the Top 10 American Home Styles, the Colonial Revival style in particular is described as being, “all about patriotism and a desire to retreat from earlier Victorian excesses and build something more authentically American.”
Whether an authentic historic treasure circa the 1700’s or a Colonial Revival from the turn of the century or an impeccable 21st century reproduction made for modern living, the Colonial style has enduring presence in America.
Take a journey through our collection of extraordinary Colonial homes honoring America’s past and present.
