The Georgian house style originated in Great Britain named after King George. This style has been popular throughout the United States and incorporates attributes shared with colonial designs. Georgian homes sometimes have raised basements and are two stories in height. Other features include hip or gable roofs, often with dormers to light attic spaces and impart a palatial look. Floor plans usually have a large central corridor from the entry. Stairs are oftenplaced in the entry with a room on either side of the foyer. Tall two-story entries are common, with balconies at the top of the stairs.
