Description

A RAREFIED STYLE IN THE 19TH CENTURY, this Victorian-era Shingle Style is one beloved today, cherished by its grand informality. Located in a beautiful valley not far from the headwaters of the Allegheny River flourishes this historical home appreciated for its simple forms and classical allusions. Situated at the foothills of the Allegheny Mountains in the heart of the Pennsylvania Wilds, this rambling shingle-covered style five bedroom home was the result of an appreciation of New England colonial forms overlaid on the popular Queen Anne movement. The original house was built in 1900 and occupied by the milliner, one of the few trades that could be owned and operated by a woman during colonial times. The established lot is 66 X 167 with a paved drive, rearmost garage and prominently landscaped back yard. The Shingle Style was highly interpretive and imaginative, exhibiting a range of motifs from old English to Georgian. Certain hallmarks apply: shingles wrap the house, undulating over oriels, corners, and eyebrow windows. Asymmetry is evident, with cross gables and roof sections of different pitch, wings, turrets, bays and oriels. The integrity of the architecture was preserved when in the 1930s the home was purchased then over the years restored, renovated and enlarged nearly 2, 000 sq ft by the owner of the Pierce Glass Company. Architectural pattern books of the mid-19th century awakened Americans to the availability and quality of slate for roofing purposes. The first commercial slate quarry was opened in the United States, by William Docher in Peach Bottom Township, Pennsylvania.
