Of all the styles of architecture and decoration that have flourished over the past decades and even centuries, none has been as enduring as that associated with the English country house. Though 'English country house style' has never been exclusively English. In the States it is viewed as a stately home and its decorative details are instantly recognizable. Part of the success and attraction of a Georgian House with its symmetry and grace is its tolerance and flexibility. Unlike minimalism, which demands straight-edged perfection, or rough luxe with its ban on prettiness, English country house style embraces wear and tear, and doesn't take itself too seriously. This circa 1909 beautiful house harmonizes perfectly with the surrounding landscape and is sporting the kind of mannered, old World luxury that Downton's Crawley family would approve of. These heritage houses retain their historical appeal without skimping on modern creature comforts.
