eastlake house



a nineteenth-century-style house with three-dimensional ornamentation made with a chisel, gouge, and lathe rather than the scroll saw. Many of the parts of the ornamentation resemble furniture legs and knobs. This distinctive type of ornamentation is the major characteristic of this style and separates the Eastlake-style house from the Queen Anne or Carpenter Gothic style.

Example: Figure 58.
