This is my favorite house in Atlanta. Once divided into a boardinghouse, an owner a few years ago restored the home to its original splendor.
This home is down the street from the one above - what a street, eh? It's in the Inman Park neighborhood, which is chock full of gothic revival, gingerbread, and Italian revival Victorian-era houses. The turrets were a popular feature
A wraparound porch and sleeping porch are Victorian elements on this French-inspired home in New Orleans.
On the same house, the awning has takes a cue from a mansard roof shape.
I am crazy about this California Victorian renovation. To tour the inside, check out this ideabook.
Here's a peek inside. Victorian era architecture often included ornate details like carved mantles and staircases.
This house is sort of a combo style. While it's somewhat gingerbread, it isn't completely decked-out. It has some Gothic severity and some hints of shingle style to it. I believe this one is in Chicago, another area that had some major rebuilding to do due to fire.
Victorian homes were well-entrenched in San Francisco's urban fabric before the earthquake of 1906, and remained in the rebuilding.
This new (and green) home recalls the Victorian Folk Style, which was more simple and stripped down than other styles during the era.
On the inside, Victorian era homes often have beautiful bay windows and interesting geometry (think turret again)...
...they also have beautiful windows and grand hallways.
