    What details make this house Italianate? Except for all of the corbels over the windows and under the eaves, it seems like a very simple Victorian. The vinyl siding doesn’t help.

      The overhang with brackets, window crowns are Italianate features. Victorian is the era which is was built (although the style is considered Romantic Era for some.) Whether it’s an older home that had an Italianate makeover, I do not know.

    Beautiful home! It’s like stepping back in time.

    So cute, but so close to the road. Love the 3rd floor studio.

    Beautiful home and features! Bonus picture of the man working with his lobster trap equipment. That kitchen stove could double as a major heating source for the house during the winter months. Very nice 3d pictures on the realtor.com link.

    if those quirky little eyebrows over the windows and the brackets under the eaves make this an Italianate, then 90% of those crumbling old farmhouses in Maine are Italianate. This looks like so many colonial and Federal farmhouses that got Victorianized later in the century to “modernize” their look. That happened to both houses on both sides of my old Federal. The interior trim and overall style look earlier. Still basically a nice unmolested house that’s been kept in good shape and it’s in Maine – what more could you want. Ocean, mountains, L L Bean.

    That stove is great, as is the chicken.

      Me too Anne. It has a clearly brilliant energy, and the next owner is sure to benefit from all the positivity left behind. A+ photography! Nicely done.

    I learn something new here all the time. I never would have guessed Italianate.

    Now this is what I call a nice, old house. I personally wouldn’t want to live in it, but I can really appreciate that type of house. It reminds me of my aunts’ and uncles’ farm houses when I was a kid. PS — love the photo of the rooster!!

    Like Paul M, I think this is just a really nice old house. Very comfortable looking and not in the need of staff to keep it up.

    Stove is wonderful. So is sweet old “hen”. Bathroom is nice. Some of the lighting is very nice.
