The Robinson House, with traces of the Victorian era and a heavy dose of the later Arts and Craft period when it was built, was meant to be an impressive home, and it still is. It echoed the traditional 19th century floor plan with a center hall and double parlors on one side, and two bedrooms on the other. There have been two major renovations done to update the house, the first in the 1930's when a carport was added on the north side, and the earlier Victorian columns were replaced; and the next in 1964 with heat and air systems and updated electric and plumbing. It is an extremely solid structure and shows no signs of settlement.

    Love the tall ceilings, and the ornate fireplace and chandelier in the dining room. Especially love the custom draperies throughout! The only thing missing is some perennials in the landscaping.

    We don’t often get driveway shots, but this one is delicious. What a place to come home to.

      No, no, no! We might be on our way to old, but we’re not there yet!

      If they put in a central system, all the ductwork is there, so all you would need to do is to change out the units if they need it. Beats starting from scratch!

    According to various internet sources, this pretty home was remodeled around 1940, which likely accounts for its current rather Colonial Revival styling. Curiously, the NRHP mention contained in the nomination for the Centreville Historic District labels it as Queen Anne. The house is said to have been built in 1899 for Lee Borden Robinson, his wife Helen, and their ten children,

    Mentioned in the nomination a few times and appears in the last pic…

    The front doors and the fireplace in the parlor are lovely!

    The lovely Eastlake entry doors with etched glass, and “Rose Hall” above the transom – maybe enough to inspire somebody to bring back the fine Victorian house this used to be.

    Big difference if you look at the street view from years past to current photos. Adams Family yard to clean cut
