Shingle-style homes arose in the Eastern United States as seaside vacation homes for the wealthy and were popular from 1880 to 1910. Other than the shingle siding, the homes are similar to the American Victorian style, with their curved porches and turrets. Unlike Victorian-style homes, though, Shingle-style homes often feature gambrel roofs. The shingle siding lends these homes a very natural, rich look. We have extended our definition to include many homes with shingle siding.
