    I could live here, no problem. While many of the things aren’t what I would choose for myself, I think I’d just leave them alone since a lot of them seem to be http://www.bradbury.com papers which are quite high end. You could put a whole family in the add-on. I love the barn!

    Someone had commented on another house about the use of concrete block as a primary building material. Here’s an early example of rusticated cast concrete used in a very late transitional Queen Anne house. The interior wood and paper are absolutely gorgeous.

    What a great house. That wallpaper is super (wish I had some). and the wood work, including built-ins, is wonderful.

    But I’m thinking the house is mislabelled – I’d definitely classify it as a (gigantic) Colonial Revival foursquare, rather than Queen Anne. And as a home built in 1908, it certainly isn’t Victorian (that period ended in 1901). Remember, Victorian is a time period, not a style.

      There were certainly Queen Anne’s built past 1901. This is still within Victorian architecture even if after Victoria’s death. Victorian architecture didn’t die as soon as she did. “Queen Victoria died, although we are 98% done with this Queen Anne this means we must burn it down and start all over.” Yeah, it didn’t work that way.

      Some may call it Edwardian but it’s still considered Victorian architecture by many even if outside her actual era.

      People say “Victorian is a time period, not a style” when someone actually calls something Victorian style but as I said, Victorian architecture remained nearly a decade after she died.

      Queen Anne features for the posted house: Steeply pitched roof with at least three gables, the front is asymmetrical. Hipped roof with small flat deck on the top. Dormer with small square colored panes, it looks like the panes echo in the arched window as well (is that window Palladian? No, Palladian needs to have an additional two windows on each side.) 35% of Queen Anne’s feature classical columns. I don’t see Colonial Revival swags, which may have started to turn the conversation to Colonial Revival. The interior certainly is more Colonial Revival but when we are talking about architectural styles it’s referencing the exterior.

      Having four sides doesn’t make a four square but I see why people get confused. Exterior wise four-squares are boxy (that’s the square part) while this particular home is very much rectangular.

      If you need help with architectural styles I recommend A Field Guide to American Houses, it’s one of the most comprehensive of all the books about American architecture.

    Oh alright, I’ll take it and all it’s furnishings and rugs, if you insist.
