The Georgian and Regency house conjures up a distinct and much admired image. Elegance, refinement and beautiful proportions have made this period an inspiration for later architects and a popular choice for today's house buyer. Using his own drawings, diagrams and photographs, author Trevor Yorke explains all aspects of the Georgian and Regency house and provides a comprehensive guide to the houses of this notable peiod. The book is divided into three sections, outling the history of the period; stepping inside the different rooms and their fittings, what they were used for and how they would have appeared; and the final section contains a quick reference guide with notes on dating houses, suggestions for further reading, a glossary of unfamiliar terms and details of places to visit.

User Review  - Jillian Leigh - Goodreads

This is an excellent research tool. It details the architectural styles of Georgian houses, with illustrations, and does a creditable job of discussing rooms and fittings (although not in the same detail). Read full review
