Queen Anne Cottage Renovation

February 2, 2019

Proposed #historic renovation of a Queen Anne Style #cottage in Uptown New Orleans. The Eastlake Style spindles and ornament are particularly noteworthy on the front porch. The design uncovers the original side gallery and added a new gable on the side of the home to complement the original gabled roof lines. The home was built c.1894-1900 by a local developer.

Eastlake is a style within the Victorian era. ( 1837 – 1901 )  It came into vogue during the late Victorian era. The house pictured here is a Queen Anne Style Cottage with many Eastlake details.  It was built late in the Victorian period, so having Eastlake in the mix makes sense.

Eastlake style of Queen Anne architecture was named after Charles Eastlake (b.1836 – d.1906), an English author whose ideas about design influenced American home builders. Eastlake Queen Anne cottages are generally smaller in size and they traditionally have more ornamentation and detail.
