Architectural Styles

Eclectic - Colonial Revival - Side-Gable Style

Typically two-story, with side-gables. Some include pedimented dormers, eaves with a broad overhang, and grouped front-facade, which vary from earlier Georgian and Federal Colonial styles.

Folk - Gable-Front - Traditional Style

Typically a narrow two-story gable-front house with a relatively steep roof pitch.

Folk - Gable-Front-and-Wing - Northern Style

Typically a gable-front two-story house with the addition of a side-gabled wing added at a right angle, forming the L shape.

Folk - New England Tradition - Saltbox Style

Typically two-story with side-gable walls, with the half-room expansion in the rear of the house covered by an elongated roof on the backside.

Folk - Side-Gabled - Traditional Style

Typically a one-story house with side-gabled walls.

Modern - Shed - Front Facade

Typically multi-directional and occasionally coupled with a gable roof, with a smooth roof junction usually with little or no overhang.

Modern - Shed - View Facade

Typically multi-directional and occasionally coupled with a gable roof, with a smooth roof junction usually with little or no overhang.

Romantic - Greek Revival - Gable Front-and-Wing Style

Typically one or two-story, with gabled or low-pitched hipped roof having either an entry or full-width porch supported by prominent square or round columns. This is a less common style with the addition of a side-wing with a side-gabled roofline lower than the dominant front-gabled portion.

Romantic - Italianate - Towered Style

Characteristic of an Italian Villa, with a tower that is centered on the front facade, placed alongside the front facade, or occupying the position where the wing joins the principal section of an L-shaped house.

Styled House - American Vernacular - Hipped Style

Typically a one or two story simple geometric form, with walls clad with one dominant material - generally wood, stone, or brick, with a simple hipped-roof form and an uncomplicated covered porch with unadorned porch supports and railings.

Victorian - Folk Victorian - Front-Gabled Style

Similar to the Folk Gable-Front house but with the addition of Victorian detailing.

Victorian - Queen Anne - Hipped with Lower Cross-Gables Style

Typically one, two, or three story, with the most distinctive Queen Anne characteristics and encompasses over half of all Queen Anne houses, with a steep hipped roof with typically two cross-gables, one front-facing and one side-facing, both asymmetrical to their facades. If present, a tower is typically placed on the corner of the front facade.

Several variations of the Queen Anne house exist, based not only on house shape or roof style, but also decorative detailing.
