Explore Victorian Home Architecture in Glenview IL
Victorian architecture began in Great Britain under the reign of Queen Victoria from 1837 to 1901. There are many styles of Victorian homes, and those that have become popular in the North Shore Chicago and Glenview areas include Italianate, Shingle, and Queen Anne. The latter is the one most people in the U.S. associate with Victorian architecture, with its richly ornate and asymmetrical appearance, wrap-around porches, decorative shingles and spindle work. These homes often feature round turrets at the corners or bay windows, and they are often painted bright colors, making them particularly eye catching on top of all the unique details.
Victorian homes are typically expansive, and it’s not rare that they exceed several thousand square feet. On the inside, the ornate detailing continues in the form of leaded glass windows, wainscoting, chair rails and intricate molding. The plans feature series of formal spaces meant for entertaining guests, and the material palette is generally opulent. Victorian homes are typically two or three stories, as they often located on narrow plots of land. They also feature steeply pitched roofs.
