Georgian Style Homes
According to Wikipedia, Georgian architecture is the name given in most English-speaking countries to the set of architectural styles current between 1720 and 1840.
A Georgian style home is characterized by its proportion and balance; simple mathematical ratios are used to determine the height of a window in relation to its width or the shape of a room as a double cube.
In Canada, the United Empire Loyalists embraced Georgian architecture as a sign of their fealty to Britain, and the Georgian style was dominant in the country for most of the first half of the 19th century. The Grange, for example, a manor built in Toronto, was built in 1817.
