Tim's Know Your Homes 101 - Italianate

Italianate Architecture was popularized in the US by Alexander Jackson in the 1840’s. The style gave Americans an alternative to the very popular Gothic and Greek Revival styles seen during those times.

Italianate style homes stand out for their exaggeration of the characteristics that defined Italian Renaissance architecture. These homes have low pitched roofs, sometimes even flat roofs. The eaves are extremely pronounced and the windows of an Italianate home are tall and thin. In the US, around 15% of these homes also incorporate the famous Italian Belvedere Tower into a home. Interiors are stately, ornate and hearken to the renaissance style.
