Victorian houses are usually categorized as those built between 1840 and 1900. Around Pueblo and Canon City houses are usually smaller than modern day houses. There are exceptions of course. The houses can either consist of many small rooms strung together or one main room with small rooms attached. Many in the Pueblo and the Royal Gorge MLS have been remodeled for modern conveniences. Many exteriors still look like they did originally, made up of granite, stone, brick and traditional frame.
Buyers should have any house completely inspected top to bottom by a qualified home inspector. A good inspector will acknowledge an old houses quirks without killing the sale.
- A potential buyer looking for a Victorian house should expect things like:
Small impractical rooms
The absence of garages
The absence of closets and storage spaces
Multi layer roofs
Old and dieing trees
Non functioning fire places
Out of plumb windows,doors and porches
After all if you were nearly 100 years old you wouldn’t be perfect either, you would have character.
