A “Castle” for a King

Following construction of Queen Victoria’s retreat “Osborne House” on the Isle of Wight between 1845 and 1851, the Italianate style became widely popular in the US and appeared from coast to coast.

This fabulous Italianate house, the home of Stephen and Tabitha King in Bangor, Maine, is one of many examples used to illustrate the style’s variations in Chapter 2 of Restoring Your Historic House, The Comprehensive Guide for Homeowners.
Now available direct from the author, as well as on the Barnes & Noble, Powell’s Books, Target, and Walmart websites and on Amazon. Order your copy today!

If you want your local bookstore to carry the book, please ask them to contact their W.W. Norton rep to order copies.
