Thank you all for contributing to this thread!

wheneveriwakeup - I too love Victorian homes. Thanks for pointing out that website, too!
yellowetpink - What a lovely picture. The homes are nice, too! Such cute windows and chimneys.
nextnewface - Despite the unfortunate ending, that story is quite the eventful one. It's a shame older homes aren't appreciated as much as they should be; they provide such rich details of history.
Rubie girl - The first house reminds me of one near my own. I should take a picture sometime and show you all, since I assume it's pretty old itself. Quick question, are all those pictures from one property or several? In any case, I am quite fond of the second to last home; it looks so warm and cozy.
e-v-elina - The windows were the first thing that caught my attention. I also noticed the tiny porches on each side of the house. Maybe they're not really porches and just steps leading to the doors, but I'll still call them that anyway.

the second and third houses belong to the same property.The second one is a house to accomodate the guests and the third one is a Orangery,an ancient building similar to greenhouse.

I love this thread, seanut. Seeing old homes like these put me in a good place, like there was a simpler time when people lived in these houses.

seanutbutter, you've posted a house in my city that I've actually been in

I my old house. It turned 80 years old this year. It's a little English Cottage style bungalow with Storybook details. I've decided to sell it, and now have some work to do before doing that. When I was looking at old houses to buy, it seemed they all had major unfinished business, a project looming on the horizon, so I want to take those out of the picture with mine, which will hopefully get me the top dollar both the house and I deserve

It's true that old houses are work, and they're a commitment, but I don't want to live any other way. It really irritates me when people don't have respect for the old house that's older than they are. Even the way you furnish and decorate, in my opinion, must be done with respect for the house. I would also sooner slap the pope (I have been tempted, luckily he has never come within range ) than destroy an original feature. Don't get me started

I love the Charmed house. I think it embodies everything Victorian in my mind. The deep color and the colored glass in the windows. My fav!

i know it's really wierd. the carolands mansion was owned by the pullman family, and built somtin=me in the early 19th century. now a whole suburban area has sprung up arouund it in the past century, but it's a gorgeous neighborhood. it has alot of history 2 girls were even murderd there you should look it up it's really interesting

This old vicarage was the first I thought about when entering this thread. It's from the beginning of the 17th century. My aunt and uncle lives there and we normally celebrate christmas there - it's just the ultimate place for relaxing and spending time with family
