Description: Victorian homes emerged during Queen Victoria’s reign in Great Britain, quickly spreading all around the globe between 1830 to 1910. Their colorful ornate facades, elaborate trim and incredible architecture is what makes each home unique, and this Camden Wyoming home is no different.
Designed by Jack Pepper Architects and constructed by Simpson Construction in 1993, this custom-built Victorian home is filled with brilliant wallpaper designs, detailed molding and loads of Victorian charm.
One thing that immediately catches the eye upon walking up to this gorgeous home is the wraparound front porch with its intricate poles painted in white, blue and gold. Imagine sitting on this front porch on a rocking chair enjoying the summer breeze. Plus, guests can enjoy the screened-in porch off the back.
Walking through the front door, the Victorian parlor is the first sight with its floral wallpaper, accented doorways and grand staircase that screams vintage beauty.
Further into the home lies the open-concept family room with an exquisite red-brick fireplace encased by built-in bookshelves and wainscotting. The family room is adorned with numerous windows, allowing tons of natural light into the room.
The family room blends seamlessly into the open-concept kitchen that holds a breakfast bar and center island. Although this lovely room needs a little extra love and attention, it adheres to the Victorian charm of this home with plenty of cabinet space and its own eat-in area off the back.
Up the grand staircase sits a landing with beautiful built-in wood bookshelves that make the charm of this home stand out. The master bedroom sits on the second floor with its own en suite bathroom, walk-in closet and bonus room that can be used as an office or exercise room.
The master bathroom offers a grand bathtub set in green tile and surrounded by windows that make this room feel like a spa getaway. On the second floor there are three other bedrooms with two full bathrooms and a large walk-up attic.
The finished basement is one of the coolest areas of the home due to the billiards room and full-size bar. Not only that, but there is a space that can be used as either a second family room or as a playroom for young ones.
Asking Price: $649,000
Selling Points: The backyard of this home is entirely wooded, creating a private environment around the property. In addition, the neighborhood has a community pool that guests can enjoy during the summer months.
