This structure seems to be a good example of Italianate architecture.
I found this on Wikipedia:
Italianate houses have many of these features: •Low-pitched or flat roof
•Balanced, symmetrical rectangular shape
•Tall appearance, with 2, 3, or 4 stories
•Wide, overhanging eaves with brackets and cornices
•Square cupola
•Porch topped with balustraded balconies
•Tall, narrow, double-paned windows with hood moldings
•Side bay window
•Heavily molded double doors
•Roman or segmented arches above windows and doors
