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.

Neighborhood


Alameda

Alameda was once a peninsula connected to the Oakland docks. In 1902, a canal was dredged to enable easier shipping access, and that turned Alameda into an island. A little off the beaten track, Alameda has a laid-back vibe all its own. Despite its 80,000 residents, there's still a small-town feeling in Alameda.

A 4th of July Parade, complete with horse-drawn carriages, embodies the small-town feel in Alameda, which has preserved much of its Victorian housing stock, cottages, and central, walkable shopping district along Park Street. The Alameda Theater on Park Street was restored to its art deco glory. Civic pride runs high here; formerly the Carnegie Library, the Alameda Free Library was transformed into a multimillion-dollar showplace that earned a Silver LEED certification. Kids play soccer on former parade grounds of the converted army barracks. Crown Memorial State Beach and Shoreline Drive attract wind surfers.

With more than 10,000 buildings constructed before 1930, there is a rich and varied architectural heritage in the area playing a role in Alameda's real estate market conditions. Historic Queen Anne's, more than 1,500 ornately decorated Victorians, and California Craftsmans are some of the most desirable homes here along its tree-lined streets.
