Queen Anne Corner Rowhouse

This Queen Anne style corner rowhouse with a fabulous shingled turret is located in Pittsburgh, PA.

The Queen Anne style often incorporates features like complex roof forms with dormers and towers or turrets. Masonry examples might combine several types of stone and brick or terra cotta. Wood examples often feature combined scalloped shingle and clapboard siding.

This brick example is relatively restrained at the base level with more animation on the upper stories. The turret takes advantage of its corner lot and wood shingle siding, scroll-cut wood ornament, and slate roofing provide pattern and texture to the varied forms.

Understanding the style of a house is the essential first step in developing a restoration plan that prioritizes the preservation and restoration of character-defining features while making changes necessary for modern life in an old house.

Queen Anne is one of the 25 styles and types illustrated in Chapter 2 of “Restoring Your Historic House, The Comprehensive Guide for Homeowners.”

The 720-page best selling hardcover book is available in bookstores nationwide and from online retailers.
