Delightful Georgian Colonial Revival

A delightful Georgian Colonial Revival style house in York, Pennsylvania.

America’s most enduring residential architectural style, the Colonial Revival got its start in the late 19th century and has never really gone away. A product of the late Victorian period, it looked back to the Georgian, Federal, and Greek Revival styles. It freely combined elements from all of them, sometimes with elements of the popular Victorian era styles.

Following the restoration of Colonial Williamsburg in the 1920s, houses drawing design inspiration from Tidewater Virginia houses of the Georgian period appeared across the country. This example, with its tall hipped roof, feels a bit like a miniaturized version of the Governor’s Mansion at Williamsburg – with a 20th century sun porch and open porch added.

Colonial Revival is one of 25 styles and types described and illustrated in Chapter 2 of “Restoring Your Historic House, The Comprehensive Guide for Homeowners.”

The 700+ page award-winning and best-selling hardcover book is available in bookstores nationwide and from online retailers.

Signed and personalized copies are available from the author in the shop on this site, https://yourhistorichouse.com/shop/.
