Veranda Porch With Seating
Guests are welcomed to the seating area of this Victorian veranda. Steps are flanked by decorative panels. A soft green color palette highlights the architectural details of this elegant outdoor space.
This house was built in 1872 by a prolific builder named Edward Mayberry. It's got the standard Victorian details – Italianate style, colonnettes and quoins at the sides and corners of the windows, segmented arch windows. Its design is a bit simpler than those built and decorated later, when those ornaments were more readily available in San Francisco.
Alternating courses of brick and stone at the foundation initiate a theme of layering and wrapping the building envelope that continues up through the terrace and chimney. This detail is carried further through variation in clapboard siding and culminates in the colors and patterns of the slate roof crowned by ridge-cresting.
The field stone was all found on site.
A beautiful example of Queen Anne Victorian architecture, this four bedroom, four bathroom home in Seattle features a cedar shake roof and a mix of wood and stone construction. During the renovation, original details were painstakingly preserved; the house is truly an historic landmark.
