Early Classical Revival architecture was inspired by the buildings of Greece. These majestic structures exemplify simplicity, luxury and Southern tradition.The majority are usually rectangular in design, highlighted by a front porch with a gable supported by columns that extends to each level. Most Early Classical Revival homes incorporate a semi-circular window above the primary entrance which generally features a paneled door topped with a pediment. Double hung windows accompany full shutters on each level which usually consisted of 2 or 3 stories. Upon entrance, a hallway is central to the floor plan. The majority of these homes are constructed of wood, stone and brick and feature multiple fireplaces.
