Modern Colonial Style Houses

Building Styles

Modern Colonial style homes are mostly European inspired. Colonial style houses usually have a normal symmetrical floorplan, but various styles have developed over the years. The old style colonial homes were houses with dark green, pitched metal roofs, white fascias, red face bricks with a white plaster surrounding, decorative steel balustrades and wooden or steel frames that are usually painted white. This was a common look formed during the Victorian era.
