Georgian architecture is named after the four British monarchs named George, who reigned in succession from 1714 to 1830. The term is often used more broadly to refer to building styles in the English-speaking world during the 18th century and early 19th century. However, some distinguishing characteristics define a house as Georgian. So, what makes a house a Georgian? Here are some of the distinctive features of Georgian house plans:

  • Symmetry. Georgian-style home plans are often characterized by a strong sense of balance, both in the house's overall design and the layout of the windows and doors. This symmetry is often seen in the façade of the building, with a front door in the middle and an equal number of windows on each side.
  • Front Door. The front door is a significant feature in Georgian house plans. It is usually centrally placed and often highlighted with decorative elements such as pediments (triangular top), pilasters (flat column features), fanlights (semi-circular or arched window over the door), and sidelights (windows on either side of the door).
  • Windows. In a Georgian house, the windows are typically multi-pane sash windows, meaning they have several small panes of glass separated by wooden muntins. The windows are usually more prominent on the first floor and progressively smaller on each subsequent level.
  • Roof. The roofs of Georgian house plans are typically hipped (all sides slope gently towards the walls) or gabled (with a triangular wall between the edges of intersecting roof pitches). They are often concealed behind a parapet wall to maintain a sense of symmetry and balance.
  • Brick and Stone. Georgian homes are typically constructed of brick or stone, with red brick ubiquitous in urban areas. You might also find Georgian houses built of timber in more rural areas.
  • Interior. Georgian-style home plans are known for their spacious, well-proportioned rooms. The interiors often feature elaborate decorative moldings, including chair rails, wainscoting, and cornices. The typical floor plan includes a central hallway with rooms distributed evenly on each side.
  • Columns and Pediments. Another distinctive feature of Georgian homes, mainly those built later in the period, is the inclusion of classical architectural elements such as columns and pediments. This resulted from the influence of the Palladian style, which was popular during this era.

Like the French country house plan style, our extensive collection of Georgian house plans offers the elegance and regal quality of traditional, sophisticated architectural design.  Georgian house plans range the gambit in terms of square footage, but the distinctive features they share make them attractive to those families seeking to build a lovely home from the ground up.
