Victorian style homes were first introduced during the period of the mid 1800s to the start of the new century. With the growing industrialization of the nation, pre-fabricated building materials were introduced supporting the construction of homes combining the characteristics of several different styles. During this period, a variety of Victorian home designs emerged, each with its own distinctive features. Victorian style homes often include the features of a steep roof with front facing gable, complicated asymmetrical shapes, round or square turret towers, bay windows, large wrap-around porches and ornamental spindles and brackets.
