Old Louisville's Victorian District

A Victorian home is characterized by the time period in which it was built; the era of Queen Victoria lasted from the 1800s into the early 20th century. Although a specific picture may come to mind when you imagine a house built during this romantic period, there are a variety of styles that can be referred to as true Victorian architecture. Romanesque, Queen Anne, and Italianate are just a few of the architectural styles that are clearly evident when admiring the buildings residing in the Old Louisville neighborhood. A Romanesque home will feature a significant amount of rounded edges. This may be most noticeable in the doorway arches and windows. Italianate homes, on the other hand, are usually spotted by their straight lines and flattened roofs. Queen Anne styled houses reach high into the treetops with their tall chimneys and turrets. The variety in shape and size of these historic buildings truly demonstrates the architectural genius of the time.

Planning to sell your home? It might be worth more than you think!
