Folk Victorian homes originated in the late 1800s to early 1900s. Families tended to build simple square or L-shaped houses. When decorative architectural trim started to be mass produced, it became easier and more affordable for homeowners to add details to their homes.
Many Folk Victorian homes have shingles and trim in a variety of patterns, with spindles on porches and fancy fretwork just below the porch roof. This "gingerbread trim" turned simple homes into one-of-a kind homes.
This main portion of this fully renovated Folk Victorian Home is approximately 2,671 sq. feet. A complete, top-down renovation was completed in 2004. The first floor includes an eat-in kitchen open to a formal dining room and a spacious living room. The second floor has a sitting area on the large landing surrounded by cherry bookcases and a window seat overlooking the front yard.

There is a separate parking area and separate, private front and back door entrances for the apartment.
The folk Victorian charm of this home shows in its picturesque front entrance highlighted by "fishscale" shingles in the gable and the restored 100-year-old door. There is detailed woodwork in the open gable of the porch and in the fretwork along the top of the porch. All of the window and door trim was recreated in the original style including rosettes, along with the crown molding and baseboard molding. There are Heart Pine floors throughout the home.
The beautifully landscaped front yard is surrounded by privacy hedges which create a private, park-like feel. Enjoy sitting out on the lawn or watch your children play on their swingset.
