One of the oldest and most recognized architectural styles, the Colonial is thought to have originated in England and brought to the United States in the 1600’s.
Known for its distinct square or symmetrical design with a centered entry front door often flanked by two side windows, Colonials are considered one of the most popular homes styles in New England, along the East Coast, and throughout the South.
Always a Norfolk favorite, Colonials are found in almost every traditional neighborhood throughout the city. Large stately brick Colonials are nestled in the beautiful in-town neighborhoods of Ghent and W Ghent and white and blue painted Colonials overlook the Elizabeth and Lafayette Rivers from desirable Larchmont and Colonial Place.
The architectural details, materials, and size may vary, but the overall grace and design of a Colonial is easily recognizable and remains one of Norfolk’s most desired styles. Call me for more information or to view available Colonials in Norfolk!
