Regency Revival

A mode of Revival architecture, found to a limited extent in America in the 1930s, that borrowed features of its Georgian and Regency style prototypes; usually two stories high with a hipped roof; had brick walls with quoins at the corners and sometimes at the main entrance, often painted white; double-hung windows with shutters; an entrance porch; and, typically, a small octagonal window above the door.
