Like many other British cities, London has a variety of architectural styles from different eras, such as the elegant stucco Georgian houses around Regent Park. Nothing can prove time
better than to admire the beautiful architecture peculiar to their time. Have you ever seen your home and wondered when it was built? Here you can examine three main styles, such as Edward,
Georgia and Victoria, and more closely, how can you make the best of the house of these periods.
Georgian properties are believed to have been constructed between 1714 and 1830. Late Georgia was from 1830 to 1837. This era was named Georgia after the first four British monarchs of
Hanover, George I, George II, George III and George IV. One of London's most famous Georgian homes will be the Prime Minister's Mansion at 10 Downing Street and the white-painted mansions
along Regent's Park. Common features of these homes are their symmetrical proportions, high ceilings, flat or shallow roofs, stucco-clad exteriors, elongated windows, and arched windows
above the main entrance. These homes were built to be spacious and comfortable, with a sense of space and light enhanced. If you look closely at these houses, you may find that the brick
walls are a bit wrong. This is a bricked window. Since the window tax was levied between 1969 and 1851. The larger the windows, the richer the homeowner. Therefore, in order to avoid high
taxes, many homeowners will block the windows with bricks to ensure the tax is cancelled, and most homeowners still block the windows with bricks to this day.
During the reign of Queen Victoria I from 1837 to 1901, the Victorian population increased and the middle class expanded. Although some of these properties still retain some of the
characteristics of Georgian houses, they were also heavily influenced by the Renaissance and Gothic Revival movements. Some ways to distinguish these buildings from those of different ages
are by looking for Gothic features, such as spires with spire windows, and sometimes wooden trim on the edges, roof gables and dormitories. In the Victorian era, many changes took place in
British society and architecture. Early Victorian homes were even slightly different from later ones. Early Victorian homes usually had more complex features, porches and bay windows, and
these designs became simpler over time as more building materials were made of iron and glass. Other identifying signs are terracotta tiles, decorative stonework and multi-colored red
bricks. At Knightsbridge, Chelsea, Primrose Hill and Hampstead, you will see some of the common areas of these houses.
When King Edward VII ascended the throne in 1901, the era of Edwardian architecture was born. This era lasted until 1918. Although short-lived, it is striking because of the influence of
the arts and crafts movement. The movement advocates simple, hand-made designs in retaliation for Victorian mass production. After the Victorian real estate boom, builders were forced to
build houses to further suburbs because there was more space to do so, creating "garden suburbs" like Hampstead Heath. Different from previous years, Edwardian houses are getting shorter
and wider, the indoor and outdoor spaces are getting bigger, the corridors are getting wider, the windows are more and more, and even the garden. Both the basement and the second floor were
missing. Other features include a red brick wall at the bottom of the house paired with imitation Tudor cladding and wood at the top. When work transitions from oil lamps to electricity,
walls can be painted lighter because they won't stain and make the home feel brighter and more spacious. In other areas of London, you will find these houses including Richmond, Dulwich and
Blackheath. plantation shutters
