Is this house considered a Victorian?

Postby pgoodcake » Tue Sep 03, 2013 2:36 pm

Hello Everyone :)

This house was built in 1900, with a slate roof. Would it be considered Victorian?

Thanks in advance for any information :)

Looks like it can be considered as one. :)

It is a very simple vernacular style (gable and ell) that looks like it has been altered over the years. If it had turned posts and rails and spandrel on the porch, it could be considered Folk Victorian or vernacular Queen Anne. With the square posts and enclosed apron, possibly from around 1930 or so, it no longer has the hallmarks of a Victorian.

I would remove the fake shutters. Shutters on this period of house should be operable and sized to actually close over the window.

With the right porch posts and trim, which it does not have now, it could look extremely Victorian.
