Picture%202.pngWhat do you think is the style of my Victorian house?

Most say it is in the Gothic Victorian style due to the arched windows and front double door and the quoins in the corners.

I would go with Italianate.  Draped windows and that type of front door were common to many styles of that era.  For Gothic, I would expect to see an arched window or some kind of fanciness wood-wise at the top of the gable.  It has obviously been adapted some over the years, though.

Thanks for the input. The house originally had double porches. I have a pic of that and will post if interested.

Why not post the picture?  I like double porches.

it's also possible that it's a folk victorian. most of those small homes adopted mixed styles to make them appear "grand" as with other details of the interior that were easy to construct on-site.
