Traditional living room renovated while reserving the original character of the building. When built in 1920 this house was designed in an “updated” Victorian style. Original Victorian homes made great effort to limit actual contact. Children and servants were relegated to separate spaces in the house than the adults, but there was a segregation of space even among the adults in the home by gender. Rooms were designed and understood to even limit contact between men and women and to preserve power relations between them.
When renovating this property we took special care to keep all separating walls in place. All Crown molding, door and window wood work needed to be recreated in period. The hardwood floors are made of amber oak solid. This is a must see house.
