    Default What style is this Chicago home?

    I purchased this 1903 1.5 story home in Irving Park. It was originally a single-family but later renovated into a 2-flat. Does anyone know what architectural style this is? See attached photo. I am curious as I have seen similar styles in Chicago.

    Thanks!

    The form is called a Queen Anne cottage. When placed on a corner lot they would invariably have a wrap-around porch. Extremely popular in southern towns.

    Sombreuil is right, we think. It's been denuded of all its original details, but the shape is right for a Queen Anne. A good resource is McAlesters' A Field Guide to American Houses; it's what we use at TOH magazine.

    He also did it before Game 7 against Chicago, as well as several times during the ... didn't make it as hard on him as we did the last two games at home.
