Colonial revival architecture became widespread in the Bay Area shortly after the turn of the last century when many of the ubiquitous East Bay bungalows were being built. It did not attempt to copy exactly its colonial predecessors, but rather borrowed details like the hipped roof and tapered columns and applied them to more familiar forms. When period revival architecture came in to vogue a couple of decades later, colonial era homes began to be replicated more carefully and these newer homes became known as Georgian revival in order to differentiate them.

The home we feature today is a pretty typical example of a large Georgian style period revival home. It has a rather strict symmetry with a central and prominent entrance. This particular home also boasts a good deal of original woodwork inside and (believe it or not) an elevator.
