Georgian-style homes are a popular choice for self builders, and it isn’t hard to see why — large windows that allow lots of light in and aesthetically appeasing geometrical form are just a couple of those reasons. They are also one of the most desirable types for house-hunters, so if you are lucky enough to find a Georgian home for renovation, take extra care to retain all the features that make it so coveted.

The Georgian era spans over a century, which means there are lots of design choices when opting for a Georgian style house. Take a look at these homes – old and new – to see what Georgian style looks like when done well.
