Victorian architecture became popular in the United States during the Industrial revolution. A Victorian house plan offers a starting point that can be interpreted and personalized in an infinite number of ways. Victorian house designs draw from a variety of styles from Gothic to Italianate and any Victorian house can definitely add a charm to the neighborhood.
A Victorian house usually has two stories or more, often with turrets and attic dormers creating cozy spaces on the third floor. A wide front porch is another feature of these houses which is a great detail. Also, Victorian style houses are usually painted in whimsical colors which you can notice from the following photo collection of Beautiful Victorian House Designs.
