Stately and elegant, Georgian-style homes are regal without being flamboyant like early European architecture styles such as Baroque and Gothic. The Georgian style dates back to the 18th century during the reign of King George I in Britain and continued through the American Revolution. This classic style of homes are prevalent along the east coast of the United States from Maine to the southern states and continue to be a popular architectural style today.
Here are four examples of current homes for sale that epitomize the Georgian architecture style.
