Victorian


Victorian houses generally reflect the styles of a house built during the reign of Queen Victoria (1837-1901)

In the Industrial Revolution an increase of need for housing lead to the building of many Victorian style houses, which now are defining features in most United Kingdom establishments.

In Britain these houses follow a wide range of styles but are still somewhat easily recognizable as Victorian. Italian, Regency, and Gothic styles were prevalent and popular in this time period- however when the Arts and Crafts movement influence increased, these styles came together to transition into Edwardian-style houses.

Popular characteristics in the United States for Victorian house styles include Queen Anne, Stick, Richardsonian, Romanesque, Shingle, and Second Empire among others.
