The Victorian Revival -
This stately Victorian home with wrap around porch, located just one block from the central “Historic District”, sits in the middle of the block amidst 1950’s era colonials. Perched on a slightly raised plot, it dominates the streetscape not by its size but by its quiet by gone era charm. It is the last of its kind outside of this area and spoke to the heart and imagination of its new Owners.
The home had suffered years of misguided improvements and neglect. Abandoned for at least a decade, it was dismaying that trying to save it caused the permit process to drag on more than a year due to the fact current zoning codes made some elements ‘non conforming’. Undaunted, the Owners were deeply commited to raising their family in this historic Victorian, with sensitively updated modern additions, bringing forward a piece of Americana to be preserved for another generation.
