Queen Victoria of England, associated with Britain's great age of industrial expansion, economic progress and the beginning of an empire, is also associated with the Victorian movement. After her death in 1901, its said that the aesthetic died with her. However, the design of the era, in homes such as this one, lives on. This house, dated to the 1850s, was initially built by George Watson. Subsequently, the Janney family expanded it in the 1870's. Lofty ceilings, floor to ceiling windows, hardwood floors, front and back staircases, carved fireplaces, and a butlers pantry add touches to the 4,960 s.f. home. The home is decorated with furniture appropriate to the era; how would it look with pieces that have a modern flair for juxtaposition? Maybe the next owner could provide a new perspective. At $589,000, there could be enough budget for interior furnishings, too.
