Victorian Style Homes in Washington DC Metro Area

One of the most enduring architectural types in Washington Metro is Victorian, coined as a term during the reign of England's Queen Victoria from 1837 to 1901. The style became enormously popular in Washington during the latter part of the 19th century and was applied across the board to single-family dwellings, row houses, hotels, churches and commercial buildings. It's hard to picture the metropolitan area without the Victorian influence and in fact, its popularity has only been exceeded by Colonial architecture. Like other seminal design movements, Victorian spawned numerous offshoots, including Gothic Revival, Queen Anne, Second Empire and Romanesque Revival.  For more information about Victorian style homes in Washington DC Metro area, contact us today!

Victorian Style Homes in Washington DC Metro AreaWhile Victorian design in some shape or form is present throughout the metropolitan area, its greatest impact was in Washington DC itself.  And, if you're having a conversation about Victorian architecture in DC, row houses have to be a part of it. One of the city's earliest major trends, these tall conjoined units followed the European model of offering cost effective housing to a rapidly expanding worker population. Not all row houses are Victorian style of course but it's certainly safe to say that a majority share the connection. In the modern era, Victorian row houses became an indispensable part of condo conversions. The same goes for Victorian hotels, apartment buildings, schools and grand manors – all were and still are, bedrock components of the restoration and conversion process. 

The emergence of Victorian-style architecture in Washington Metro coincided with a period of rapid expansion and a changing of the tides. While earlier designers had often come from Europe, the Victorian era ushered in the first major wave of American professional architects – often builders that made the transition to design. Single-family homes were often tall and symmetrical with either clapboard, shingles or brick exteriors. Front gables and/or side wings were common as were generous porches and richly detailed woodwork, including spindles and jigsaw scrolls. One of the more distinctive subtypes is the aptly named gingerbread house design. Among various elements present in row houses and larger buildings were multiple-story bays, corner towers, narrow windows and hipped roofs. 

Prices for Victorian style homes in the Washington metropolitan area are understandably varied. Samplings from the upper end of the spectrum include a nine-bedroom Grand Dame manor in Georgetown built in 1875 with an asking price of $8,995,000, and a 14-bedroom mansion with turreted towers constructed in 1883, recently lowered to $4,999,995 and located in Old City #2 in DC. On the low side of the market is an 1897 three-bedroom fixer-upper farmhouse on four acres of land in Upper Marlboro, Maryland, listed for $209,000 as well as a cute three-bedroom short-sale house in historic Mount Rainier, Maryland that recently went pending for only $180,000. The disparity of prices is not indicative of rare exceptions – listings are well distributed across the financial range and throughout the entire Washington Metro area.
