Georgian home in Suffolk

Built between 1714 and 1830, Georgian homes are known for their internal and external symmetry, use of locally sourced brick and stone, and three to four storey heights. Often listed due to their age, these properties are spacious and comfortable, with a great sense of space and light.

Bricked up windows are also common, as wealthy homeowners looked to reduce their tax bill, which would have been large due to the window tax of the time.

To find out more about period properties, read our blog, ‘What is the difference between a Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian Property?’. If you’re interested in buying one of these properties, we’ve picked five of our favourite Georgian properties currently for sale in East Anglia.
