A Georgian style house emulates a period of classical architecture that defines a style that remains both desirable and a preferred choice for those taking on a self build project.

Georgian architecture is the style that was dominant during the reigns of the four Georges (1714 to 1837). It is a subset of classicism and exists as part of the 3,000-year continuum of classical architecture.
