By the end of the Victorian Age, many homebuyers had tired of architectural frills and opted for simpler, cleaner designs. This gave rise to the Craftsman style, with its gently pitched roofs, deep overhanging eaves, square columns and generous front porches.

The homes of the 1910s did not abandon decoration altogether, however. According to Trulia, many homes built in the 1910s come with built-in buffets, china cabinets, leaded glass windows, and claw-foot tubs in the bathrooms.

This Portland, Ore., home, which is on the National Register of Historic Places, was built in 1911 and boasts a built-in buffet in practically original condition. Throughout the house is varnished woodwork, leaded glass, wainscoting, and boxed beam ceilings.

The home has some modern touches too, including a penthouse suite, high-end kitchen appliances and a finished basement.
