We talk about architectural styles on the blog occasionally, such as Federal, Cape Cod, or even Log Homes. Probably the most common in Northern Virginia, given the rich history of the area, is Colonial. But what exactly does Colonial-style architecture entail? Better Homes & Gardens defines it this way:
The Colonial style--dating back to 1876--is one of the most popular styles in the United States. Colonial homes usually have two or three stories, fireplaces, and brick or wood facades. The classic Colonial house floor plan has the kitchen and family room on the first floor and the bedrooms on the second floor.
While Colonial homes come in all shapes and sizes, the traditional markers remain the same and make for a classic part of the historic area we know and love. This week, we have three such homes that show just how diverse of a range Colonial-built can provide.
