Shingle style homes can be found across the country, blending traditional design with weathered materials, calling to mind the East Coast, particularly the seaside escapes of Cape Cod, Nantucket, Newport. The style rose to popularity during the late 19th century and borrows elements from architectural styles of the past, including Queen Anne and Colonial Revival. Shingle style homes are distinguished by their wood cladding, asymmetrical façades, gambrel roofs and welcoming verandas. Classic yet informal, the look remains popular for country homes and beach retreats, with current architects adding contemporary influences to the historic aesthetic.
