Need a Break From Modernism? Check Out These Six Beautiful Victorians for Sale

Sally Kuchar – October 3, 2019 | Updated November 12, 2019

If you really want to lean into the Victorian home lifestyle, look no further than this circa-1900 cottage just steps from Alamo Square’s famed Painted Ladies. It’s the back building of an even larger and more ornate Victorian in the front, which gives it a tranquil feel that’s complemented by the koi pond, hammock, and new grill and picnic table.

Boise, ID

Originally built in 1894, this Queen Anne home was moved from its original location to its current one in 2015. While the abode’s original charm is intact (hello, original woodwork!), a very thorough remodel brought the interiors up to the standards of a modern lifestyle.

Duncans Mills, CA

Not too far from the San Francisco Bay Area sits this Victorian home on the Russian River. Designated as one of Sonoma County’s Historic Landmarks, the house was built by a local mill owner for his daughter over 135 years ago. In fact, it was built with wood milled from first-growth redwoods found on the property.

Issaquah, WA

What’s more grand than a Queen Anne Victorian? One that’s been outfitted with modern amenities like a Lacanche range in the French Country kitchen and a carriage house that’s been turned into a one-bedroom, one-bathroom guesthouse.
