house plans, Georgian homes are most suited for generous lots. Symmetrical double-hung windows and brick or stone chimneys on the exterior hint at the stately symmetry of the expansive rooms inside. The centrally placed front entry captures the style's tasteful elegance. The paneled front doors, sometimes doubled, are flanked by columns or pilasters. A transom window overhead completes the inviting look. The moderately pitched roof of the Georgian home plan has little overhang and often includes gabled dormers.
