House Style of the Month – The Queen Ann Victorian

by | Jul 8, 2014 | St Cloud Custom Home Design

July’s house style of the month is The Queen Ann Victorian style.

Coming from the 1800’s this style is the result of advanced technology of the when ornate moldings and many other parts could be mass-produced cheaply. Richard Shaw designed the very first Queen Ann Victorian style house in England, however the first ones to be built were found in California where the trend then spread to the rest of the United States. These houses are 2 – 3 stories tall, typically with 6” lap siding and 6/12 – 12/12 roof slope. Some key features of these homes include bay, picture, stained glass and tall double hung windows, turrets, decorative chimney tops, many porches including porte-cochere and carpenter’s lace.
