I was fortunate enough last week to be a lunch guest at this most amazing Victorian House. While I was there, the homeowners were gracious enough to let me take some photos and share them here on the blog. This house is currently for sale if you’re interested. Most of the photos are mine, but a few are from the real estate listing.
The entire house is done in true Victorian decor. The exterior of the home is painted in pinks and purples, painted-lady style. The wrap around porch covers 3 sides of the home.
The entry door on the left is an amazing dutch door. It’s super-thick, solid wood.
The house is 3,900 square feet and the original part of the house was built in 1940. We will start the tour in the living room. The colors and fabrics throughout the house are in keeping with the Victorian era.
There were several vintage steamer trunks throughout the house. This one was serving as a coffee table.
The light and bright dining area, has a double set of french doors that lead to a deck that spans two sides of the house.
Have you ever seen a toilet like this? It was a first for me. This is the downstairs half bath and it is a functional antique toilet. Notice the pressed tin ceiling as well!
The bright white kitchen has tons of cabinet space, with an open pass through to the dining area.
On the other side of the kitchen is the family room, which is also bright with lots of natural light. This room has a door leading to the porch on the back of the house.
The home also features a formal dining room.
In the large entry foyer, the original staircase was replaced with a curved stairwell.
The master bedroom is huge, with a double closet.
And its own fireplace, with beautiful details.
The master bath is also very spacious. I love that the beadboard on the walls was continued on the front of the bathtub.
It also features a double vanity.
And a walk in shower, tiled with white subway tiles. There are beautiful fixtures throughout the bathroom.
One of the secondary bedrooms features double closets.
I loved the vintage door to this room, and the door knob. Most (if not all) of the doorknobs upstairs are this style.
The dresser fits perfectly in the nook between the closets. I kept imagining what I would do with that nook, loads of fun possibilities.
A third bedroom is also quite spacious. This room has a second door leading to another room behind it…
…which is being used as a workout room. The workout room has a staircase that takes you up to the third floor.
The third floor is a finished attic space that is very large. The doorway has an interesting arched shape.
Back down on the second floor, there is a large landing area with a window that over looks the driveway.
What I loved about this window was the original hardware. There used to be a problem with this window leaking during storms. To fix that, they added a second window on the exterior side to serve as a storm window for added protection.
There is also a huge unfinished basement with a work shop room. Tons of potential there as well! This house if for sale, and it is also zoned for commercial use. You can see the realtors listing for more info.
