It wasn't on my plans but as soon as I arrived to our destination, I also knew I had to take some pictures. A row of beautiful Victorian-styled homes was there saying hello to me. Quickly, I took my daughter to the field for the game, went to the places I planned on going and came -pronto- to take some pictures before the game was over.
The first house I went to look at was this charming pink home. I love the ornate porch, one of the many characteristics of Victorian-style homes.
Its curb appeal was one of the best in the entire row, not surprisingly, it's a nicely disguised bed and breakfast.
Fall decor was lovely displayed.
The house in the corner had a bit of a spooky feel, possibly the stone and black features were the ones that made me perceive it like that. Nonetheless, the textured exterior on the wall and the round tower are strong Victorian-style.
Continuing to the left of the B&B, my attention goes to the bold color on this home's trim.
The typical rich ornamental details are present once again.
The features that called me to this next home are the round tower and beautiful steep roof.
True to Victorian-style, the roof is covered with wood shingles. The metal weather-vane is one more of the fancy features especially in Queen Ann Victorian-style homes like this one.
The main entrance is given more importance with a pediment.
A view from the other side of the property.
This next home is similar to the one in the corner, with a stone tower, this time on the opposite side of the house, black textured walls and columns adorning the porch. A vibrant landscape highlights the home's architectural features.
Yellow, black, white... Victorian style homes can handle many colors.
They all don't have to be overly decorated or boldly colored. This gray and white home is a clear example of it.
The rounded front porch and the green color are some of the features I like about this next home.
Seasonal decor give this home a good amount of color.
An elaborate front porch marks this home entrance.
The detail on the pediment adds to its charm.
Finally, this next home took my breath away, it's huge!
It has many of those Victorian characteristics.
I like that sweeping rounded porch, the decorative spindles and the bold brackets under the eaves.
All four sides of this home are quite different.
And don't be surprised that the back porch looks like the main entrance, just lovely!
I love this type of homes, I admire all the work that was placed in each one of them, however as much as I love moldings and architectural detail, I'm more inclined for a much clean, simple style.
