You have probably heard of a Tudor or Georgian style home, but maybe never knew how to identify one on sight. Our guide to iconic home styles shows how dwellings in England, Italy, and France influenced the way we build our houses today in North America. This guide is a must-read for any real estate buff who prides themselves on their knowledge of architecture.
By reading our guide, you will learn how to identify homes based on their facade, style and amount of windows, roof, and siding. Not only is this helpful on a practical level, as it will increase your real estate knowledge, but it also serves as an interesting history lesson. Home styles have always been influenced by socioeconomic factors of the times they are conceived; watch how the period of Victorian opulence morphs into the Craftsman style during leaner times.
