Slide 9: Italianate Victorian House


In the 1840s, builders and architects became inspired by the villas of the Italian Renaissance. An American interpretation of Victorian Italianate design can be seen here in the Southern Mansion in Cape May, New Jersey. This Victorian treasure boasts typical Italianate elements, such as a cupola; tall, narrow windows with decorative lintels; a low roof with deep overhangs and supportive corbels; and brackets at the top of single and paired porch columns.
