Rectory, townhouse, villa, mushroom… these Georgian homes for sale highlight the diversity of architecture from the Bridgerton period beyond the formal living rooms of the ton.

 

After The Great Fire of London ripped through the capital, it forced a giant leap in building methods and regulations, with timber structures ditched in favour of bricks and mortar to ensure the same disaster never happened again.

 

Tiny gatekeepers’ lodges and giant rectories sprang up alongside the classic rows of elegant townhouses, while the beginnings of Britain’s industrial age also emerged. Huge riverside wharves serviced the maritime trade, while manufactories and mills churned out luxury goods and daily staples in greater volumes than ever before.

 

The Georgian period has become a timeless entry in Britain’s architectural lexicon, with imaginative renovations and conversions skilfully updating the commercial and residential buildings into homes fit for the twenty-first century and beyond.

 

As if to prove the point, these six Georgian homes for sale come in all shapes and sizes, with locations as diverse as their forms. From central and suburban London to the leafy Cambridgeshire countryside and down to the Sussex coast, join us for a walk through time and extraordinary transformation.
