The Victorian style of architecture is named after one of the United Kingdom’s longest reigning and most influential monarchs: Queen Victoria. Her sixty-year-long rule over the United Kingdom signified a period of cultural growth and industrial revolution that included stylistic changes to traditional English architecture. Victorian style homes can be identified by a variety of aesthetic features, including irregularly shaped and sharply pitched roofs, decorative front-facing gables, and asymmetrical facades that often include rounded, turret-like structures. Matching their ornate exterior features, these homes include a variety of interior embellishments that were popular in English architecture during the Victorian Era, such as lavish crown moldings, detailed wainscoting, and massive central staircases accompanied by extravagant stained-glass windows.
