The Highly Desirable and Rare Italianate
Italianate buildings tend to be characterized more by their ornamentation than by the structure itself.
Easily distinguished by its gently sloping roof and deep overhanging eaves, which are seemingly supported by a row of decorative brackets, or corbels.
As home styles began to get more diluted throughout the latter part of the 19th century, well-educated homeowners tended to choose styles with more authenticity. It takes a certain level of sophistication to understand and appreciate the qualities of an Italianate home.
Italianate architecture knew no class boundaries. The high square towers made the style a natural choice for upscale homes of the newly rich.
Tall, narrow, paired windows, many arched with hood moldings projecting above the windows; a side bay window, and a heavily molded double door.
Of all the homes built in the United States during the Victorian era, the romantic Italianate style became the most popular for a short period of time. With their nearly-flat roofs, wide eaves, and massive brackets, these homes suggested the villas of Renaissance Italy.
