      Boston MA Colonial Homes

      The Colonial home is one of the most popular styles of home in the United States. The Colonial style evolved from European influences, which started in the 1600s. Many colonists emigrated from Europe and brought those influences with them. Over time the Colonial style became distinct, recognizable for its use of geometry, and different regions of the United States added their own tweaks to provide relief from the climate.

      Regardless of the size of the home, Colonial-style homes share several characteristics.

      • A symmetrical, square shape
      • A central door
      • Paired chimneys
      • Medium pitched roof
      • Straight lines of windows on the first and second floor
      • Often a decorative crown above the door and flattened columns to either side of it
      • The door leads to an entryway with stairway and hall aligned along the center of the house and all rooms branch off of these
