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 hipped or gables roofs often with dormers to light attic spaces and a palatial look. Floor plans usually have a large central corridor from the entry. Stairs are usually placed 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.
