Norfolk, Virginia and the area surrounding it has a rich history; if you take a stroll around some of the neighborhoods in the area, you’ll see that many of the homes here have either been restored or styled after historical houses. One particular architectural style that has been preserved or has been a popular choice for many residents is Queen Anne.
The Queen Anne architectural style is one of the most unique (to the point of eccentric) Victorian house styles. First seen in the 1880s and the 1890s at the height of the industrial revolution, Queen Anne homes can be described as picturesque with “free Renaissance” details. They are characterized by features such as an asymmetrical facade, a dominant front-facing gable and overhanging eaves. Queen Anne houses are also known for their “towers”—large porches that often cover most of their façades. Their exteriors are often covered with terra cotta tiles and wooden or slate roofs. All these components make for a style that is truly distinctive, elegant and timeless.
Whether your home is a Queen Anne or any other popular historical style, you want it to turn heads and have plenty of curb appeal. And a big part of maintaining that historical value is seeing to its proper maintenance. Your historical home needs the attention and care only experts with enough experience and proper training can provide.
