Can anyone tell me the architectural style of this house?
Thanks in advance
Realize that I'm coming from a position of near-total ignorance, but it looks Gothic Revival to me. With some Mission/Arts & Crafts touches. The pitch of the roof says "Gothic Revivial" and the porch columns and arch say "A&C."
But I know nothing.
I don't know anything either .... but I though Arts and Crafts right away : )
...so much for any expertise responses
The year that the house was built would be helpful, but remember that Arts and Crafts when it started was actually just a facet of Victorian architecture. Often in Victorian architecture, there's a wide range and buildings often fall into more than one category. So, I would agree with vjrnts in saying that this house has arts and crafts influcences(porch and all that stucco) and the pitch of the roof is gothic revival. I'd guess it was built in the 1910-1920's and to simplify, I'd just call it Victorian, but if you really like arts and crafts, you can definetly run with that!
All said, I'm just shooting from the hip too and could easily be wrong. Good luck!
Thanks for the help in identifying the style. It was built in 1896.
Wow! I was way off- I think stucco is unusual during that time (it was very popular during the arts and crafts time). But, I'll link a great site that can help categorize your Victorian. According to this site, you'd be "Folk Victorian."

I agree about the style but I suspect it was originally Folk Victorian and got a face lift and a new porch when the Arts & Crafts style became popular.

Thanks, here is a link to a photograph of the house.
I think it may be heavily modified from what it looked like in 1896. Like the details of the porch and the wall finish (stucco). The remodeling would date to the teens or twenties.
It's a cross-gable, story-and-a-half Queen Anne cottage hiding under there.
What anvil and mongrel said. I thought the four-square style house next door meant this house had to be older than typical U.S. Arts & Crafts homes, so the 1896 makes sense. The stucco and porch were added likely in 1915-1925 (depending on your city and when A&C got big there, it could have been earlier or later).
