Welcome to my Italianate house portrait gallery.

The Italianate style of architecture came into vogue in the United States after the popularity of Gothic, Greek Revival, and Federal styles. The oldest standing Italianate home in America is the 1844 home of North Carolina Governor. In the US, the Italianate style displays exaggerations of the details found in 16th century Italian villas. Low pitched or flat roofs, towers, and columns are characteristics often seen in these homes. These homes are generally two-four stories with tall, narrow windows, and cast iron or pressed metal ornamentation. The Italianate home is also often found on property with lovely landscaping, traditionally in the style of the Tuscan countryside.
