PSC #9960563759 | type: standard shingle style

A domestic style characterized by simple lines, broad gables, gentle curves, and rustic materials.

Detailed definition and meaning:

The shingle style is a late Victorian style mainly used in American domestic architecture. Reacting against the excessive decoration of the Queen Anne style, it features relatively simple forms and broad masses, although it may result in fairly complex shapes through a combination of building wings with multiple gables and turrets. The style takes its name from the wood shingle facades that are most commonly used in its representative houses. Distinguishing features include broad, prominent gables, round arches, rounded corners, and windows recessed behind rounded perforations in the facade.

Approximate dates: 1880 - 1910
