Italian Style House

Built to resemble Italian villas, an Italian style house design takes inspiration from 16th-century Renaissance architecture. Also known as the Italianate style, or Tuscan Villa style, it first appeared in the US in the 1840’s. It became popular as an alternative to Greek Revival and Gothic design styles which were popular at the time.

An Italian style house is similar to the Mediterranean style and most often features low-pitched roofs, wide overhanging eaves, square cupolas, decorative stone work, wrought iron decor and a symmetrical design.

  1. I absolutely loved the part of your article that showed an example of a large rustic kitchen that connected to an outdoor patio. This has always been what I imagined when I thought of basing my house around the idea of outdoor dining, which is something that my relatives really love. Once I find a construction contractor, I’ll make sure that we get something similar to this example when we start building the kitchen area.
