Italianate style

(1840–1880)
A style typified by a rectangular two- or three-story house with wide eaves supported by large brackets; tall, thin first-floor windows; and a low pitched roof topped with a cupola. There are pronounced moldings, details and rusticated quoins. Earmarks of the style are arched windows with decorative “eyebrows” and recessed entryways. The style appeared in cast-iron facades, whose mass-produced sections featured many stylized Classical ornaments.

An eclectic style of Italian-influenced residential and commercial architecture; fashionable in England and America from the 1840s to around 1890. Italianate style residential buildings may be classified as: Villas: Domestic architecture intended to resemble prosperous farmhouses or country manor houses of northern Italy; usually two stories high, with an attic story; Town houses: Urban row houses, commonly three or four stories in height with a flat or very low-pitched roof; mullions divide both the upper and lower window sashes vertically into two panes. Commercial Italianate style buildings: a raised pediment above the roofline at the center of the façade, often with the name of the building and/or the date of its completion, and a cast-iron façade. Palazzi: See Italian Renaissance Revival.
