The Georgian Style, named after the three king Georges who reigned from roughly 1700 until the American Revolution was the first expression of wealth through architecture created by the newly prosperous merchant and landed gentry classes. Although the style can take many forms, the ultimate expression of Georgian architecture is the five-part Palladian villa. This form is composed of a large main block with two smaller forms arranged to the sides, called ‘dependencies’, and are connected back to the main house by small wings called ‘hyphens’. It makes for a very grand entry and allows for great circulation both inside and out.
This High Georgian Style was chosen for this home as it was designed from the start to provide a place where the clients could hold large and formal parties. The classical symmetry found in both the façade and the floor plan as well as the Greek Revival details provides just such a backdrop, and allows for both large and small gatherings both indoors and out. The twenty-six acre in-town site is laid out in a way to give the owners total privacy, as well as comfortably allowing for out-buildings and a three-hole golf course. The house design, tailored for the owners who both participate in motorsports, includes a wine tasting room overlooking a 35 car garage to house and display their collection of racecars.
