  2. Colonial Houses built in the 17th century were mostly built of wood, with a flat face and simple facade. Home builders back then did not add shutters, arches, porches, door decorations, or trims to their windows. Basic as they were, these colonial houses were very reliable, and erected to be tough enough to withstand storms and cold winters. Georgian During the 1700s to 1800s, this type of architecture became focused on symmetry, with simple facades seen in ancient Roman or Greek structures. The windows on the front are regularly-positioned, with all windows from higher floors aligned with those on the ground level. Roofs are low or moderately-pitched, with side gables. Typically, these houses are two stories high and around two rooms deep. A well-known building with this architectural style is the Cape Ann Museum on Pleasant Street, which has been standing since 1873. Victorian Most ocean-side properties in Gloucester exhibit the awe-inspiring appeal that Victorian architecture is known for. In the mid-1800s, as the city’s maritime industry developed, many houses of this type were built, indicating how families have become more well-off. This style shows off intricate exterior details, grand arches and curves, and higher and steeper roofs with many gables. Porches and railings were elaborately designed with geometric shapes, and even the floor plans became irregular and non- symmetric. Today’s house hunters are still allured by the timeless charm of these classical houses. In many ways, most of the original designs of these homes remain, with a few renovations over the past years. Interiors have also been refurbished not only to look more appealing, but to be functional enough to cater to all the modern needs of home buyers.
