There’s no doubt Washington DC is known for its classic and historic architecture, and when it comes to residential real estate in the area, few will argue against Georgian style homes being among the most attractive you’ll find anywhere on the local real estate market.
Dating all the way back to the 18th century, Georgian architecture certainly has a rich history and features a number of unique and identifying characteristics, including chimneys on both sides of the home, side-gabled roofs, 6-paned windows on the upper floors, larger 9 to 12-paned windows on the main floor, paneled front doors, and lots of decorative moldings that help make such properties stand out inside a neighborhood.
Today, Georgian style architecture is widespread throughout Washington DC and its suburbs, especially on the luxury segment of the market. When you consider the Georgian style's ties to old English colonies and settlements, it’s certainly fitting for much of the DC area to feature this particular style of home, and even on larger developments like apartment buildings or commercial structures.
As for where you can find some of Washington DC’s most impressive Georgian style homes for sale, Foxhall Ridge has an abundance of extraordinary options for home buyers to consider, while many of homes in McLean, Chevy Chase, and Bethesda also follow a classic Georgian design.
