A lot of people think of a house as just a house; at most, we describe it as a “pretty house.” Did you know that these houses actually have names and different styles?
Home styles have always been influenced by socioeconomic factors of the times they are conceived; watch how the period of Victorian opulence morphs into the Craftsman style during leaner times.
Ghergich & Co. teamed up with PartSelect to create a helpful guide to all the different styles of homes. From Tudor to Contemporary, they guide you through all styles of houses so you know how different these houses really are!
Their guide to iconic home styles shows how dwellings in England, Italy, and France influenced the way we build our houses today in North America. This guide is a must-read for any real estate buff who prides themselves on their knowledge of architecture.
By reading this guide, you will learn how to identify homes based on their facade, style and amount of windows, roof, and siding. Not only is this helpful on a practical level, as it will increase your real estate knowledge, but it also serves as an interesting history lesson.
