A stunning Queen Anne style house in Easton, PA. This lovely example of the Queen Anne style has a boldly projecting tower on one side of the façade. An expansive porch with a stone base extends across the front and wraps around the side. The outstanding two-story projecting bay window above helps emphasize the porch entry bay. The combination of clapboard and patterned shingle siding is typical of the style, as are the varied windowpane patterns.
Popularized by magazines and house plan books by George F. Barber and others, houses in this style were built from coast to coast. Technological advancements in the wood products industry allowed the construction of wood-framed houses with complex forms and elaborate detail at reasonable prices for middle-class buyers.
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.
More than 50 full-color photos illustrate the Queen Anne style in Chapter 2 of “Restoring Your Historic House, The Comprehensive Guide for Homeowners.”
