Some people will only want to live in a Victorian style home while other people would never consider it. While you can built a new home in the contemporary style, many people buy an old Victorian home with the intention of fixing it up.
I know fixing up an old Victorian is an enormous job because I have a family member at the tail end of a what has turned out to be a 10 year reno of a huge 4,000+ square foot Victorian home. Yes, it’s beautiful. Yes, it’s even more beautiful now that it’s done, but it’s also referred to as the never ending money pit.
That said, a nicely renovated Victorian home is something special. Many, especially many of the homes featured in this Victorian home photo gallery, can be considered a work of art. The intricate design and woodwork on some of the homes is truly astonishing.
Further, you can certainly built a new home in a Victorian style; however, most newly built Victorian homes lack the intricate details of the homes built during the Victorian period (1837 to 1901).
