Edwardian buildings are basically post-Victorian residences similar to the Queen Anne style in form and massing but lacking ornamentation.  Sometimes called Princess Anne, these buildings feature multi-gabled roofs, asymmetrical massing, simple surfaces, and occasionally wrap-around porches, a short tower, and classical detailing.
