This wonderful Italianate style house is in excellent condition.
Popularized by house plan books and it’s use by Queen Victorian for her summer home Osborne House, the Italianate style got a toehold before the Civil War and took off after the war, with examples of the style appearing in all parts of the United States. This house has many character-defining features of the style, including the bracketed eaves, segmental arched windows, window hoods, square porch columns, and flush board (or match board) siding on the façade. The modern fiberglass replacement door and sidelights are unfortunate.
