Victorian homes rose in popularity in the United Kingdom during the reign of Queen Victoria, from the mid to late 19th century. The ornate style quickly spread worldwide and gained traction in the United States from 1860 to 1900. Victorian architecture is a broad category that encompasses several well-known styles, including Queen Anne, Gothic Revival, Italianate, Second Empire and Romanesque. A Victorian-style house has very distinct exterior traits — an asymmetrical two- or three-story shape, elaborate trim and moulding, vibrant color schemes, steep roofs, wraparound porches, and stained glass. On the inside, Victorian decor is just as regal, with floral patterns, intricate wallpaper, hand-carved furniture, velvet and lace details, luxurious chandeliers, dark woods, and warm, rich color schemes.

In keeping with the estate’s traditional English Tudor style 10,000 sq. ft. of gardens were designed. The English Gardens are characterized by regular, geometric planting patterns and pathways, with antique decorative accessories heightening their old-world feel. Special nooks and hideaways, coupled with the sound of cascading water in fountains, create a serene environment, while delicate lighting in planter boxes makes the garden perfect for early evening strolls.

Originally designed by J. Merrill Brown in 1887, this Queen Anne style home sits proudly in Cambridge's Avon Hill Historic District. Past was blended with present in the restoration of this property to its original 19th century elegance. The design satisfied historical requirements with its attention to authentic detailsand materials; it also satisfied the wishes of the family who has been connected to the house through several generations.
