    Interesting mix of styles here. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a sloped-in wall that was tiled like the one in this home’s bathroom.

    Realtor says this “would be the perfect place to suit your needs”. Really?

    Interesting mix of 1865 Second Empire with an updated 1890’s interior. The “Queen Anne” wrap-around porch does not enhance the original design but is probably comfortable and given its age, worth keeping. People sometimes tend to think remodeling and updating houses is a modern phenomenon but Victorians who could afford it frequently remodeled and updated to the latest fashion tastes. I’ve seen Colonial era houses that were “Victorianized” a hundred years later before the 1890’s when Colonial Revival became popular. Some stylistic mixes/hybrids are actually superior to the original design but I don’t think that’s the case here.
