Explore Colonial Home Architecture in Evanston IL
As the name would suggest, American Colonial architecture emerged during the 1600s to mid-1700s, and most of the Colonial-style homes here reflect British Colonial architecture.
Colonial homes are known for being symmetrical, and are typically rectangular in form and stand two stories tall. They typically feature steep, shingled, side-gable roofs, and these homes usually have a central fireplace or one at each end. The front door is centered, and it is flanked by an equal number of windows on each side, which feature shutters in contrasting colors. The pubic spaces, including the kitchen and living areas, are located on the first floor, while bedrooms are on the second.
Though relatively plain in aesthetic, Colonial homes are honest in terms of materials—typically wood and stone, i.e. what is readily available—as well as simplistic in form. There are other varieties of Colonial homes including English, Dutch, French, and Spanish. While this home type has been around for hundreds of years, it has remained timeless and is a popular choice for homes in the Evanston area as well as across North Shore Chicago.
