This is a bay window because it extends outward from the house.
This is a fanlight because it is above the door, and it is cut into slices like an orange.
This is a hipped dormer, set into the roof to bring more lighting into the home.
This is a more infrequent styled type of broken pediment because of the straight line and curve on the sides. Dresses up the door way. Broken pediments are more found in very high end housing, which is fitting for it to be placed on this bank entrance.

This is a Cross Gabled roof. It is an inverted V shape in the front of the house.
This house has a traditional Gambrel roof, which creates more attic space.
This is a triangular pediment that has some dentil accents to dress it up more.
This is an example of dentil deatling, which is just for decoration to dress up a building.
This is a hipped roof on a gable.
Turrets are towers, that are found on the sides or roofs of houses.
This house has a low-pitched gabled roof with unenclosed, overhanging eaves. It also has decorative roof braces under the gables. Additionally, its porch is supported by square columns, which is very characteristic of the Craftsman style.
With its low roof pitch, close eaves and rake, and large chimney, this house is a prime example of the Minimal Traditional style, especially because it is made of stone. Also, it's simple, non-decorative, and one story, like many other Depression era homes.
This historic home was actually one of the first Catholic churches in east San Diego. Its rounded, roof parapet or Mission style bell and arched windows and door are tell-tale signs of this architectural style. Additionally, the smooth white stucco and red tile roof contribute to the Mission design.
This contemporary house is characterized primarily by line to make it look clean, new, progressive, and complex. Its flat roof and overall boxy look also gives a the hosue a cutting edge, modern look.
Georgian style houses have a centered front door with windows that are aligned horizontally and vertically in symmetrical rows. About 40% of the surviving Georgian houses have side gabled roofs. This style also uses tooth-like dentil work and used many types of pediments, however, the triangular was the most common.
This is a Colonial Revival house because it has symmetrical and rectangular features. The brick siding, gabled roof, pillars and multi-pane, and double-hung windows with shutters emphasize the simple and classic characteristics used to build these homes. Its temple-like entrance and fireplace display this standard style of the 20th century.
Federal style houses are very similar to Georgian but with a few more details such as dentil work and cornice-line balustrade. This house uses more curved details, iron work, and portico style porches.
This is a Richardsonian Romanesque house because it has brick siding and decorative wall patterns made of stone. The unusual sculpted shapes show the architect’s individualism. Its aligned, rectangular windows and archways help to further display this style.

This is an example of the Beaux Arts housing style because of its stone construction, symmetrical façade, and detailed sculpture decorations. It also has cornices, pilasters, a flat roof, and repeating symmetrical windows that further exhibit Beaux Arts features.

This is a Neoclassical home because of its massive columns, simple side-gabled roof and its symmetrical facade. It has a full porch and elaborate pediments over the door and windows, which are Neoclassical elements, as well as dentil molding and balustrades along the roof lines.
The red roof tiles and stucco siding show that this is a Spanish Eclectic home. Its stucco siding and lack of overhanging eaves are also characteristics of this style, as well as the flat roof seen in the rear of the building. The arc above the carved wood floor is a classic Spanish Eclectic style.
Gothic revival introduced the pointed arch and used this over windows and door entrances. This style also used grand scale and many carved details such as pinnacles and battlements.
Queen Anne style usually uses a front facing gable, patterned shingles, cutaway bay windows, and a lot of spindle work. This is all to avoid a smooth-walled appearance. Additionally, brackets, dentil, and bands of trim are used as decorative elements.
Stick Victorian usually uses steeply pitched roofs with a cross gable. The gables commonly show decorative trusses and overhanging eaves. Wooden wall cladding is interrupted by patterns of horizontal, vertical, or diagonal boards (stickwork) for emphasis.
Folk Victorian used porches with spindle work detailing, lace-like spandrels, or flat jigsaw cut trim. This style is most commonly symmetrical and also used cornice-line brackets. Without the Christmas lights, the classic brackets on the porch would be more visible.
This is an excellent example of a Tudor style home. It’s steeply pitched roof, prominent cross gables and huge chimney topped with chimney pots really exemplify characteristics of this medieval style architecture. It also has tall windows with small window panes that are classic Tudor feature.
