Browse Shingle style houses for sale in Los Angeles, CA.
A shingle style house is exactly what it sounds like: a house clad in shingles (overlapping wood) - not just on the roof but also on the exterior walls.
The Shingle style is an American architectural style made popular by the rise of the New England school of architecture, which eschewed the highly ornamented patterns of the Eastlake style in Queen Anne architecture. In the shingle style, English influence was combined with the renewed interest in Colonial American architecture which followed the 1876 celebration of the Centennial. The plain, shingled surfaces of colonial buildings were adopted, and their massing emulated.
