The Queen Anne style was the flamboyant culmination of the building styles today grouped as Victorian, particularly in San Francisco where any residence built between the Gold Rush of 1849 and the 1906 Earthquake and Fire is commonly called Victorian.

In addition to Queen Anne, these Victorian architectural styles include Second Empire, Gothic Revival, Italianate, Stick, Eastlake.

Distinctive Queen Anne features are:

  • asymmetrical facade
  • varied roof shapes with gables and overhanging eaves
  • dominant front-facing gable, often cantilevered out beyond the plane of the wall below
  • one or more round, square, or polygonal towers
  • shaped and Dutch gables
  • a porch covering part or all of the front facade, including the primary entrance area
  • a second-story porch or balconies
  • pedimented porches
  • a variety of siding types: horizontal board, wood shingles shaped into varying designs such as diamonds and fish scales, terra cotta tiles, patterned relief panels
  • dentils
  • classical columns
  • spindle work: finials atop roof crests, sunbursts decorating window tops and porch frieze, and turned posts and balusters
  • oriel and bay windows
  • horizontal bands of leaded windows
  • monumental chimneys
  • painted balustrades
  • wooden or slate roofs
