With nearly four centuries of popularity, the Colonial has long been considered the classic American home. Two-story symmetry articulates the “look” of the Colonial home, and often – but not always – these homes employ the theme of “five over four, with a door” (five upper-level windows, stacked above four main-level windows, with the front door in the center) The realm of Colonial design includes variations such as Georgian, Federal, New England, Southern, and Dutch Colonial (among several others), each with design characteristics that uniquely enhance this historic architectural classification.
- Two-story symmetrical design
- Five-over-four, with a door
