Victorian House Designs in Authentic Full Color: 75 Plates from the "Scientific American -- Architects and Builders Edition," 1885-1894
Much of American domestic architecture in the late Victorian era reflected the affluence of a new middle class. Well designed and attractively landscaped, the new homes routinely incorporated many features once available only to the very wealthy. This volume contains 75 exceptionally handsome full-color plates presenting a choice selection of these residences, as well as other buildings.

Reproduced from a rare collection of architectural designs, exquisite full-color plates depict a wide variety of cottages and clubhouses, city dwellings, suburban and country homes, and other structures — even a firehouse and a county store. Most are shown in a meticulously rendered perspective view featuring beautifully landscaped grounds with animals, bicycles, and other realistic touches, along with a complete floor plan, some including measurements.

Designed by architects based in the Northeast and Midwest, the plans embrace a broad range of styles — from a charming three-story brick and shingle "cottage" in Buffalo, New York, and a baronial, ivy-covered residence in Stamford, Connecticut, to imposing residential row houses in New York City and a huge, rambling Chicago clubhouse with turrets, towering chimneys, and a wraparound "piazza."

Of special interest to architects, home restorers, and preservationists, this splendid archive will also appeal to anyone who enjoys a nostalgic and revealing glimpse of the spacious dwellings that graced the American landscape over a century ago.

    Today’s book recommendation suggestion comes from reader Robert M. It’s 75 full color illustrations from the 1885-1894 publication of “Scientific American-Architects and Builders Edition.” It also has the illustration of a home in Kansas City, link featured here before. OHD Supporters can also take a look at the 2002 recreation in Garland, Nebraska.

    I’m running behind and didn’t get today’s old house photos ready last night so I’m recycling with something already featured. Unknown location.

      Very Nice Charles……the Norwich house has a great 1st floor plan and I’d take the bedroom adjoining the master on the second floor and design a master bath and walk in closet. This house has plenty of bedrooms. I love the Thompson house and at that price (where I live one could not even buy a garage!), one could do a great job of restoration. It has many lovely features, be they original or not……it’s a beautiful house.

    GREAT PHOTO! I have this one in my library too.
    I used it to discuss furniture upholstery and trimming from the 19th century. Picture number 4 you can see how chairs gimp (the trim used to hide the upholstery tacks) applied with very small gimp tacks. Now people just use glue. Its small details like this that make a piece truly authentic when trying to reproduce an accurate representation to today. Even if it appears crude or odd by today’s standards. Many people incorrectly use double welt which you never see during this time.

        The exact same photo. I can’t remember where I got it. I search the internet for photos all the time. I have thousands. I had to buy space to store them because my iPad Space was depleted. Lol.
        I definitely got it online. I also have many photos sent to me when I visit websites or go to museums. I buy personal rights sometimes to not publish them but keep in private collections. Do you remember were you got this one from ? I assume you do the same as me. Historic New England website also thousands of high resolution photos you can zoom in on. Very very good resource.

          I think eBay, maybe Etsy (real photo this time not a postcard photo.) I don’t use anything from online but buy these so I can do whatever I want with them. I’ve got two large binders and three boxes full, some real photos, some glass negatives but many postcard photos. I collect them for the site header but also have another collection of people photos (thought about including one as an extra for Friday posts, would y’all be interested in seeing the occasional people photo along with the Friday’s house feature?)

              “…abundance of bric-a-brac…” modern terms people call that “clutter” (I kind of cringe at that term.)

              Just imagine Instagram being a thing back then with rooms like this, people would have to out bric-a-brac each other.

                Yeah I cringe at the term too. I usually use quotes around words like that. Or words that we say today that weren’t really used back then. Like “gingerbread” trim.
                Clutter sounds so negative. I need to find a good word to describe it. But this was one of the only times where you see such an abundance of stuffs in a room. Juxtapositioning of pictures and bric-a-brac, carpets on top of carpets etc.

                      I have seen these late 19th century interiors described as having “an abundance of personal possessions” which sounds more positive than “clutter”.

              Speaking of fabric, look how the cloth under the potted plant is bunched up rather than placed flat on the table. Interesting. Adds texture and depth, I guess.

      Uh-oh. So I should have used nails for my Eastlake platform rocker? I hang my head in shame! If I were to nail the gimp, what color should I use on black gimp? The upholtery is black and tan geometric.

        Lol. I was talking with museums. But if you wanted to use gimp tacks just plain metal which are usually blackish in color. The heads are really small. I’ve also seen large gimp ornament tacks used before too. Those are pretty but the little gimp tacks are usually more popular in the photos I see.

        I have a beautiful NeoGrec couch that I had recovered the guy glued on the gimp but I made him put these small gimp tacks in every inch.

        Check out this beautiful one. This is a popular application of material having stripes of velvet with a pattern. You can also notice small gimp tacks.

          MJG,

          Thanks for the suggestion. And that chair is absolutely astonishing! My rocker isn’t nearly so fancy, though it is made of walnut and has some bits of burl inlaid.

          I bought it in terrible shape, but it was remarkably comfy, and fit me perfect. I’m glad I like antiques, and that they work in my house, because new furniture is WAY too big for me, and my house!

          Anyway, I decided to completely re-do the chair,and after calling an antique restoration guy and getting a bid of $600, I did it myself, and it was quite the learning experience. Upholstered back, and arms, and the seat of course.

          I repaired and refinished all the wood, learned how to re-install the springs with 8-way tying, and everything else that goes into old chairs. What a job! It took about 40 hours total, turned out nearly perfect, cost less than half the quote I got including buying the chair.

          And I now have priceless knowledge as an added bonus *smile*

            Yeah I love the small pieces of Burled inlay. In some period photos of Berkey and Gay furniture company, the pieces of inlay have a piano polish on them. so glossy you can see your reflection.

            WOW good for you! Its a daunting task. I had no time to due it myself back then. I had way too many other projects going on. But you’ve inspired me!

          That is a beautiful upholstery job MJG. I agree gimp is more authentic than double welt, but sometimes a piece of antique furniture has been recovered/reupholstered so many times that the numerous tack holes destroy the wood underneath the gimp. There might not be much wood to tack into. I think in that case glue must be used, that’s my humble opinion.

          • MJGMJG says: 504 comments
            1887 Queen Anne

            Oh yeah! That wood gets totally destroy and even dried out over years. There are some wonderful fillers and composites that are used now that fill in he hold and make a solid piece. They had to do that on one of my pieces. There was nothing to attach the Materials too let alone the gimp.
            I know it sounds silly but I get angry when I see museums improperly upholster furniture. They are supposed to ensure they are accurately representing the period and when shortcuts are taken that misrepresent the period it makes me mad.

    Hi fellow OHDers! Check out this amazing French property in my area, built on the ruins of an ancient Roman fortress, with underground tunnels and rooms and plenty of buildings and outbuildings. Don’t miss the drone video after the pictures! 728,000€, Marigny-Marmande (Indre et Loire) http://www.frenchestateagents.com/french-property-for-sale/view/55092CFI37/house-for-sale-in-marigny-marmande-indre-et-loire-centre-france

Only the roof structure (inverted ship hull) is interesting here, the other rooms are rather bland… https://proprietes.lefigaro.fr/annonces/maison-indre+et+loire-centre-france/19043699/ 980,000€ (too much imo) right in the old heart of Tours (Loire Valley) near the Cathedral (not to be missed!! https://goo.gl/maps/1zwSQQZhKcq) and Beaux-arts museum, within the fortified area behind them, with paved narrow streets. I think this is this building: https://goo.gl/maps/WHceoTq5Nvw

    Kelly, I love the interior photo, and hope you will include more in the future!

    My first share is an 1892 Queen Anne in the Hudson River City of Kingston, NY for $499,000. It has an unusual turret design, and an old photo seems to indicate that the lower stone exterior is original:
    https://www.zillow.com/homes/76-Saint-James-St-Kingston,-NY,-12401_rb/

    Second is an 1850 Greek Revival for $264,000, with an interesting front facade and a lovely Catskill Mountain setting in Middletown, NY:
    https://www.zillow.com/homes/5090-County-Highway-6,-Middletown,-NY_rb/

    Finally, a new listing on a Catskill, NY house previously featured in OHD, an 1875 Italianate, then offered in mostly untouched condition for $495,000:
    https://www.oldhousedreams.com/2017/08/03/1875-catskill-ny/
    And the new listing, made habitable with a $1.5 million price increase – while the integrity of the house remains intact, I’m not a fan of the battleship gray slathered everywhere. Regardless, I’d really like to hear what other OHDers think of the “before” and “after”:

      I actually didn’t mind the updates on the Catskill home (as in I didn’t cringe.) I’m happy they kept the windows!

      I wish the Kingston home was with an agent instead of by owner, I’d LOVE to post that one! One of the most interestingly designed exteriors I’ve seen. Nice they included the old photo too!

      The Middletown is on my list, I started to post it yesterday but thought maybe I’ve been posting too many NY homes the last couple of days. 😀 I love the exterior, Greek Revival’s are my favorite style.

        Thanks, Kelly. I know people aren’t impressed with New York thanks to the taxes, but count me as one who always looks forward to seeing NY posts. BTW, I missed your update on the Catskill house a few weeks ago, obviously…

        P.S., I realize that referring to the Catskill house as previously “untouched” was inaccurate – I was referring more to the lack of 20th century updates…

      The Frank A. Palen house in Kingston was posted here before the rehab – I appreciate that they didn’t mess it up. Uptown Kingston is full of fine old houses, with many already lost or altered. My grandfather was born around the corner when that house was new.

      The Greek Revival is at New Kingston in rural Delaware County, not the city of Middletown 80 miles south. (Technically the Town of Middletown but nobody uses that address.) Great house at a fair price!

      The Catskill farmhouse has been Brooklynized but not too badly altered. City folks that think big houses on acreage always command estate prices just don’t get it.

      Barbara, I agree. The redo of the last home is not my taste. So gloomy, moody and frankly depressing. As a decorator I see so many opportunities in this beautiful structure to create atmosphere without it being an endless stream of earth tones and burlap draperies.

      I adore the Queen Anne. It’s like hitting the lottery with lovely details in every room.

    Kia Ora from New Zealand,

    I am an introvert and a country girl at heart so living in a city, let alone an apartment, is sort of anathema to me but this one is special, in my opinion – the building exterior alone is enough to make me sit up and notice. It’s a stylish 1914 apartment with many original features located in the heart of downtown Auckland. It would be ideal for the young, single professional who wants to be close to work and all the amenities the city has to offer. It is for Auction and has a CV of $US444,500.00.

    https://www.bayleys.co.nz/1653620

    Very cute cottage (pre 1914) in Mangatarata in the Hauraki Plains region an hour and a half south of Auckland and half an hour or so from the stunning Coromandel Peninsula. As you can see from the aerial shots you have plenty of privacy and no near neighbours with just enough land to grow a vegetable garden and have some sheep. I love the mint green living room. It has a council valuation of $US323,000.00.

    https://www.realestate.co.nz/3527153

    Mostly untouched and impressive stone 1891 homestead in the South Island Central Otago town of Roxburgh. It is the driest region in the country so plenty of sunshine hours and crisp, sunny winter days. It also comes with an orchard of over 1700 trees. I really like it but I wouldn’t want the orchard. I could not find a valuation for it but it will be in the seven figures. I am going to try and keep an eye on this one to see how long it takes to sell because you are really taking on a lot when you buy an agricultural property.

    I just want to apologise that all of the homes I list every week are so expensive but that is just the reality of real estate in New Zealand.

      I completely and seriously understand this sentence. 😀 I feel like I should apologize every time I post homes in certain towns/states due to the prices. But it is what it is, not our fault! I do enjoy looking at the New Zealand homes you share at any price.

        For me most of the houses you post are relatively “cheap” because I am so used to seeing such higher prices ( even for small new builds on tiny lots). But at the end of the day it should be about showing as wide a variety and age of old houses as you can and if some are inexpensive all well and good. I just love seeing them no matter what.

        Kelly – No probs, re: cost of the posted houses, at least for me. I’m happy with the house I have, & after getting its mortgage paid off, and being retired, have no big desire for another mortgage! To me, this site is pure entertainment & dreaming, appreciating houses which appeal to me. And often their decor, sometimes gathering ideas for possible future firnishings for my own house…fabrics, paint colors, wallpapers, etc. Doesn’t matter if I could ever afford the homes or not. Still fun! Plus one learns new stuff here. 😉

      I, too, really like the exterior of the first listing’s building! Interesting, and the tiling of the entranceway is really cool. Another introvert here, but living in a city doesn’t bother me. I grew up in a village, and everyone knows everyone & their business – that would now drive me nuts! In a city one can be as anonymous as one wants, or gregarious when the mood hits.😉

    https://www.theguardian.com/artanddesign/gallery/2019/mar/10/life-and-art-in-a-victorian-workers-house-in-pictures
    from the article:
    “Wimhurst and her husband bought the house from Parr’s granddaughter Elsie Palmer, who inherited it directly from her grandparents and lived there “very privately” until her death in 2014 at the age of 97. She changed little in the house, preserving not only her grandfather’s impressive hand-painted artwork, wall tiles, Edwardian lino, handmade furniture and decorative glass windows but also the ancient coal-burning stove built into the kitchen fireplace and the morbid Victorian quotes about death written on the walls in a neo-gothic script.”

      Full columns like that, Classical Revival (some also call it Neoclassical.) Adding that the build date matters, Classical versus Greek. It’s Classical Revival rather than Greek Revival due to the build date and Classical features you wouldn’t find in original Greek Revival’s.

          Yeah, I don’t agree with that part of the book. I think Neoclassical should be used to describe the applied features (maybe features is the wrong word) rather than the name of the style itself.

            I don’t mind Neoclassical for the early 20th Century style, but dropping the Classical Revival term that was used for 50 years is a bit arrogant. They now call Palladian homes from around 1800 Early Classical Revival, but Classical Revival isn’t even in the index!

              She doesn’t even make a reference in her Neoclassical chapter of the alternative Classical Revival term. The Early Classical Revival chapter has always perplexed me with Monticello as an example of the style when I’ve always heard it being Palladian (and Neoclassical.) I think the National Register even calls it Palladian. I wonder what her reasons were for using Early Classical Revival but not Classical Revival?

                To me Early Classical Revival = Roman Classical Revival = Neoclassical. All can be used to describe the mid to late 18th century architecture influenced by Italian Renaissance architecture. I prefer Classical Revival or Neoclassical Revival to describe the late 19th/ early 20th century style rather than just Neoclassical to eliminate confusion with the earlier style.

    A 1935 brick cottage for just $200,000. 4bd, 3 bath. Looks like a lot of original stained glass left (which I’m noticing are hard to find around here). The fireplace is gorgeous, but I’m betting the mantle isn’t original. It looks more turn of the century or earlier. Probably a salvage from somewhere else. Floors look good, basement looks dry. Still a lot of original charm but with comfortable updates. One thing about the price though; this is in a northern St Louis suburb that usually has less expensive housing because….it’s northern St Louis County. BUT, I’ve noticed gorgeous old homes in amazing shape for amazing prices from this area. This is such a charmer. And a built in garage even! If only it wasn’t so far from work for me!

    Charming house in great condition. I like the house a lot, but as with some of these listings, with RE taxes over $12,000 at a $295,000 County assessment as is this one, I always wonder how much they’ll go up with a sale at the asking price…?? Taxes have become a big consideration in my part of the country, especially for retirees.

      Hi Sandy, I don’t know how Connecticut readjusts its taxes. Here in Pennsylvania sale prices do not immediately or directly affect taxable value. Every so many years (like 5, 10 or even 40 years just to mention a few examples from this area) the County government decides to do a general re-assessment of every property in the County, theoretically to market value at the time of the assessment — but market value isn’t determined by what a property sells for but is determined by what the County thinks it is worth. This can be higher or lower than a recent sale price. Does Washington immediately adjust taxes when there is a new sale price?

      This is a great property you shared. It would cost at least that much here and likely have similar taxes, but they wouldn’t go up right away when you bought it.

      Thanks Joe! The house is known as the Fisher-Grouse farmhouse and it’s documented in the state preservation files – no info online unfortunately. It’s probably not as old as 1760 though it’s easily 150 years old.
      The lot is almost an acre, much larger than most others in the neighborhood. I live across from a public field and I have a nice view and only hear an occasional cheer in the fall and spring. Certainly a fence and some plantings would provide more privacy.
      The house appears to need new systems but the structure looks sound with a new roof. It might be fun to restore a very old house in such a location! Also, the price might come down considering the owner just bought the place in 2017 for $29k.

    Although the details say 242 acres the listing description says it’s a 13 home development on 242 shared acres. So maybe this is one of those land lease things, I’m not sure. In any case it’s an amazing home built in 1912.

      I went to school in France years ago. The French state, determinedly secular, owns most of France’s great cathedrals like Notre Dame de Paris and has skimped on their maintenance and restoration for years. Heart-breaking to see people weeping in the streets, affirming to see them singing and praying. God willing, may it also be affirming to watch what will surely be a hugely popular movement to rebuild and restore, like Reims Cathedral, the Frauenkirche in Dresden, or the Private Chapel at Windsor Castle. Who knows but that this terrible event may be used for good, to awaken the French to recognize and cherish both their architectural and religious patrimony!

        Oh we do cherish our patrimony, religious or not. It’s part of our culture and environment, it’s all around us. It’s a core feature of the French identity. No doubt about this.

        I’m currently on a Belgium/NL trip but yesterday evening I was hooked to my phone, I had to follow the disaster. I had the « please save her / let her stand » feeling, just like when I watched 9/11 live on TV. I was relieved this morning because I expected to wake up to worst than it actually is. The cathedral wasn’t painted inside (like St Germain des Prés), it was mostly stone, glass and decor (statues and paintings), so it can be rebuilt imo. Of course centuries-old wood and structures were lost. Donations are already flowing in, 200 million € from LVMH among others and I’m pretty sure more will come from all over the world and from the French despite the fact that we generally don’t care about religion and donating isn’t in our habits. But we love our buildings and heritage ❤️

    Located in aptly named ChineseVillage, this is certainly not your typical Florida home. This area of Coral Gables, Florida has a few themed 1920’s neighborhoods. Using StreetView you’ll see several Chinese style homes. This one has the traditional Feng Huang entrance gate and retains much of its original features. https://www.realtor.com/realestateandhomes-detail/5133-Riviera-Dr_Coral-Gables_FL_33146_M56405-29288#photo41

    A little bit of good news. DR Horton, when faced with strong local opposition, decided stop their effort to cram 1000 houses on the property around Gippy Plantation. I had shared the listing on the link exchange back when the c.1852 Greek Revival house was for sale last summer (this is the house with the cannons on the front porch). Maybe a more sensible plan will be brought forward for the surrounding property.

    Can’t post this one but it’s amazing! Original kitchen, knock out dining room built-in. I dread thinking about what the next owner may do to this one.

    Built 1913, $2,200,000 in Piedmont, California.

    I have been interested in Notre Dame this week and listening and watching as the story unfolds about the fire. Here is an interesting article on how the cathedral was digitally scanned and how this information may help reconstruct what has been lost.

    Hi–long time lurker, occasional commenter here–

    recently, the “click here to jump to comment box” has not been working for the casual viewer (me), either on phone or Imac.

    However, upon registering, it just worked. Is this intentional?

    and BTW, thank you Kelly, this site is a delight and pleasure, and the comments are so informative. OHD is always the 1st place I go every day.

    I just cannot wait on this one……this property recently sold for $935,000, but it is so fabulous I just have to share. An 1835 NC Mill converted in ingenious ways to a home plus guest house in 1935. It is full of great ideas and so beautifully furnished in the listing photos. Its story is very inspirational too. Enjoy!!

    A horse, I mean a house, of a different color is this former bed & breakfast c. late 1870’s in Cambridge OH to be offered for sale at auction: https://www.realtor.com/realestateandhomes-detail/633-Upland-Rd_Cambridge_OH_43725_M43113-89072 The estimate is $213,300 which would put this Victorian mansion in bargain territory if that were the accepted bid amount. Here’s some additional photos: https://www.coltaylorinnbb.com/photo-gallery.html The house is known locally as the Colonel Taylor Inn. I believe this house is located just up the street from a George Barber designed house that was offered here in the past.

    This comment might not fit and if so, please remove if needed. I was on a long weekend vacation this week and ran across an antique store that dreams are made of. Out in the middle of no where, Ebert’s Antiques, Manitowoc, WI. I have been antiquing my whole life and it takes ALOT to impress me. This guy has been collecting for over 50 years and is a hoarder with furniture. He has the finest taste in furniture that I have ever seen. His barns are overwhelming as the stuff is stacked floor to ceiling and every space in between is filled. If you were looking for original pieces for any style from about 1900 to just before mid century, he would have it. 90% furniture. He wants to get out of the business so the prices are good. I would guess that what he has now would fill 5 semi trailers and he told me that what I saw was 20% of what he has! He has a Facebook page with a picture that gives an idea of what the place looks like. Good luck if you go there. It is really something!

    Ever been to Ian Scott’s place in Monroe? Its massive and has a fair number of real antiques, or at least did last time I was there.
    In Macon there is the Payne Mill antique mall, its pretty rewarding…very low prices in general and a few of the anchor sellers do a fair amount of collecting in middle GA.
    Best antique store in the region is Antique Attic in Dothan AL…its so worth the drive.

    We bought our 1851 home in Forsyth GA and needed to fill it. Most of what we ended up buying came from those three places.
    We ended up scouring the consignment market in both GA and FL for rugs that were appropriate. Saved us tons of money, especially in FL where there seemed to be a flood of amazing hand loomed rugs for dirt cheap.

      We went last year to Monroe. Made the mistake of going on one of the hottest days of summer so maybe we need to try again when it’s not so melty. I’ll add Payne Mill to my list, thanks!

    $799,900 CAD – This house is in the beautiful, historic town of Bath, Ontario Canada. It’s a friend’s house which they operated as a B&B. If I could afford it and had a large family, this would be my forever home. There’s a beautiful view of Lake Ontario right across the road. The real estate agent lists the build date as unknown but I found the following information:
    “338 Main St. Bath
    c.1877
    This house appeared in the Oct 1877 Canadian Illustrated News as one-story with a steep central gothic cross gable on its facade. The bay window and gingerbread trim shown in that sketch are retained on the east gable end of this house. Supports the late 19th century development of the village streetscape through its massing, scale, and setback.”
