Homes in New England date back to the late 1600s. Some of these earlier, historic homes remain in good operating condition. Places like the Sarah Orne Jewett House, Castle Tucker, Gedney House and the Coffin House have become national landmarks. Four stories tall and large and expansive, covering several thousand square feet,these beautiful homes offered a glimpse into what lay ahead for housing in New England. Today, popular homes throughout the region, like those depicted below,continue to attract individual and family home buyers.

Historic to Modern New England Homes

Colonial homes in New England are large wood structures that are designed with lots of windows. Front sides on these homes are flat, absent shutters or eaves. Roofs on colonial homes are long and pointed at the top. These spacious residences offer lots of rooms, historic value and interior design options. A good way to distinguish your colonial home from other neighborhood colonials is by choosing a home that is painted in an appealing color.

Cape cods are seen throughout New England. A single walkway leads to the front porch, if the home has a porch, as not all cape cods have a front or back porch. Look for a chimney at the middle of the roof. Itís common to find shingle siding on a cape cod. These homes come with closed and open floor plans.

Georgian homes in New England are similar in style to colonial homes in that they are designed with a relatively flat front. Windows on these homes generally do come with shingles and are larger than those typically found on a colonial home. Another difference between a colonial and a Georgian home is the shape of the roof. Think of a triangle when envisioning the roof on a Georgian home.

Victorian homes are built with wraparound porches. Roofs on these homes are steep and multi-leveled. Some Victorian homes have one tall roof, its tip pointing toward the sky like a steeple. Other homes are built with two or more tall roof tops. It may be the expansive wraparound porches and multi-entrance ways into the homes that make these houses a win.

New England also boasts homes with contemporary or modern designs. Chic in style,these homes are constructed of field stone, wood or brick. They tend to be one level and uniquely shaped. As with historic designs, modern and contemporary homes offer lots of space and opportunity for you to exercise your interior design creative skill.

Major events that impacted Americaís earliest beginnings happened in New England. One of the widest known and taught about events is the American Revolution. That period put cities like Boston and Lexington, Massachusetts and Groton, Connecticut at the forefront of American politics. It also helped to define early American culture. Homes early trendsetters, educators, business leaders, artists and activists lived in served as a model for future home builders. Popular New England homes continue to take on features found in some of the regionís early,popular homes.
