Not only is this turn of the century Victorian gorgeous on the outside, but the inside is just as lovely. Located in the Lakewood Balmoral Historic District in Edgewater, this five bedroom, three and a half bathroom house on Lakewood Avenue has been renovated, but done so in a way that is sensitive to the historic character of the home. It features many of its original architectural details inside and out. The exterior paint job for example is just lovely. There's also a lot of original fixtures and hardware, like the front door, the built-ins in the kitchen and formal dining room area and the bathroom tile.
According to the listing agent, this home was designed by the architect Niels Buck for developer J.L. Cochran and was constructed in 1899. This type of home may not be for everyone, particularly those who are keen on the more current trends, but this restored Victorian will certainly impress vintage lovers. All of the restoration and updating will come a price though. This one is asking $1.135 million.
