This brick Queen Anne style house has a fabulous second story porch overlooking the Susquehanna River in Owego, NY.
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 in its masonry work. The porch with turned posts and spindlework is a common feature of the style, as are the upper-level porch, scalloped shingles in the gable, round window, and stained-glass transoms.
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.”
