Victorian buildings range from the great “painted ladies” to more modest homes of 1-1/2 stories. They have an asymmetrical building footprint with projections and intersecting masses in the roofs and walls. Roof pitches are at least 12/12 and roofs may be hipped and/or gabled in a variety of combinations. The gables are emphasized with decorative wood shingles and ornate trim. Round turrets are common on the most elaborate Victorian houses. Facades frequently include a large picture window, slightly taller than wide, surmounted by a fixed pane of ornamental glass. Victorian porches are ornate, with turned or round columns, porch rails, and turned spindles in a variety of patterns. Porches are large and gracious, often wrapping around the house.
