While San Francisco is full of Victorian-era architecture, it is more specific to label the Italianate examples as romantic-era designs, like this one. Defining characteristics are the bracketed cornice details and the segmental arched windows.Variations on window configurations are common throughout this style. Notice how the front of the house feels classical at first glance, but the proportions and lines are taller and more attenuated.
