Americana The Beautiful: Historic Luxury Properties

The U.S. election might be over, but Previews Inside Out has nostalgia for all things Americana this week.

The U.S. election might be over, but Previews Inside Out has nostalgia for all things Americana this week: 18th century antiques, cozy Rattan chairs, brass table lamps and classic New England farmhouses that beckon us back to a simpler time. Of course, the truth is, architecture in the United States is as diverse as the people who live here—but there are certain architectural styles that have a quintessential American feel. These luxe Georgians, Greek Revivals, Farmhouses, Colonials and Federals from Coldwell Banker Previews International® inspire us with their sense of history, reminding us why America is the beautiful.

Concord, Mass. $1,949,000 USD

This fabulous Greek Revival Farmhouse on the Ridge makes us dreamy for the past. Masterfully crafted, with extraordinary amenities such as high-efficiency systems, a stately stone porch, oak flooring, classic crown and baseboard moldings, wainscoting, expansive windows and ceilings, as well as luxe custom built-ins. And it doesn’t hurt that it’s near Minuteman National Park.

Kenilworth, Ill. $8,950,000 USD

A classical revival home designed by noted architect Daniel Burnham, this property has been masterfully renovated to preserve the architectural integrity of the home. With seven bedrooms, a coach house and more than 10,685 square feet,  it certainly has enough room for a large extended family.

 

Powell, Ohio $1,360,000 USD

Featured recently in Columbus Monthly, this stately brick Georgian masterpiece has artfully blended formality with easy livability. Overlooking a private lake and resting on 2.29 acres, it offers the peacefulness of the country and total elegance with four bedrooms and 8,306 square feet.
