The Georgian/Federal home style is a variation of colonial architecture. It features tall double-hung windows, simple window combinations, and multiple divided lights with rectangular grilles. In the late 1700s, Georgian style marked a time of reformation of the American house from being simply utilitarian and functional to one that was stylized, stately, spacious and comfortable. Its roots were in Classical Roman architecture. Federal style was a continuation of this movement, but was identifiable by greater attenuation and refinement of many details.
