Queen Anne

Private Residence

The Queen Anne Period lasted from 1880 to 1900, and was used in York for homes of some of the wealthier residents. These buildings feature asymmetrical massings of rich textures and shapes, large chimneys decorated with corbelled brick or terra-cotta panels, and bay windows—sometimes with stained glass. Most buildings have gables, dormers, towers, or turrets. The roofs are usually steeply pitched. Buildings in the 700 block of South George Street exemplify this style.
