This 1930s-built Nashville home is in the Georgian Revival style, an English architecture that was transplanted in the late 19th century to the U.S. and rebranded as "Colonial Revival." A brick walkway leads from the new brick and Belgian cobble motor court to the welcoming columned porch, which is flanked by "cloud" pruned boxwoods. When the new homeowner purchased the Nashville property, it consisted of a pleasant 1930s Georgian Revival home on approximately six acres with a significant number of mature canopy trees in a pastoral setting. Georgian architecture, by definition, originated between 1714 and 1830 during the reigns of the House of Hanover British monarchs (George I, II, III and IV). The style was later revived in the late 19th century in the U.S. as Colonial Revival architecture. While the home had a stately bearing and presence, the property had almost no landscape features: no walks, walls, terraces and no hint of a garden. The garden and landscape as you see it today have evolved significantly under the stewardship of the current owner over approximately four years and three phases of a long term landscape master plan. 26 Landscape Architect and Specifier News
