What elements are in a Greek revival house?


Answer by  sanityrose (2664)

A Greek revival house will have specific architectural elements including a roof enclosed with a triangle pendent and horizontal framework. The house will also have large and tall windows.

Ionic Columns and ivy. But to make the setting truly what it needs to be, do not use more that three different colors. This style is very simple and geometrical.

Some of the most important elements in a Greek revival house are the columns, the enclosed arches and perhaps the most beautiful part is the tall windows which usually go from floor to ceiling.

Outside elements include a flat roof, double-hung windows, brick or clapboard exteriors and columns. Inside you find wood cabinets, chair rails and crown molding.

Greek revival homes will be a boxy design with many evenly spaced windows on two levels. There are usually several columns that span the height of the home. The front facade will feature a large triangle gable with pediments. The homes are almost always painted white.
