The main residence at Melvin Residence was built in 1890 and we are constantly busy with the restoration of this beautiful house. The house is in the Victorian (Queen Anne) architectural style. Queen Anne style (1887-1910) has the following characteristics: - Basically, a freeform composition with Classical details - No rules of proportion (house expands in every direction). - Bay windows may jut out from load-bearing walls, sometimes out of a corner at an angle of 45 degrees - An ornate porch along one or both sides with rows of stick-and-ball spindles - Complicated roof planes, e.g. gables pointing in several directions - Usually has a tower, a cylindrical or polygonal structure topped with a "candle snuffer" - Vibrant colors were used to highlight decorative features - Eclectic appropriation of ornamental elements from earlier periods, e.g. garlands, columns and carved wood - May have triangular wooden gable end perforated with jigsaw ornamentation We bought this house in 2002 and have been busy with various restoration projects ever since. Elize and myself have done all the restoration work ourselves!
