If you love CIRCA, then chances are you’re also head-over-heels for all things Victorian! To help feed our need for towers, turrets and spindles, we’ve employed the lovely Theresa of the uber-popular Facebook page Vintage Wonderlust to take as all around the country showcasing her favorite Victorian houses. First up: California’s lovely (and haunted!) Morey Mansion!
For my first piece, I figured it would be quite fitting to take a peek inside one of my all-time favorite Victorian houses! Not only is the Morey Mansion a beautiful house, but it also has a fun history of paranormal activity. This house was built in 1890 for a modest price of $20,000, and last sold for almost $2,000,000 in 2010.
This style of home is called Queen Anne, and this one in particular has 4,800 sq feet of the most beautiful ornate and eccentric architectural detail — enough to make just about anyone drool! The Moray Mansion is very well-known (you can see why) and has been called “America’s favorite Victorian Home.” It has been featured in movies, television shows, and commercials. I will leave the dreaming up to you based on these wonderful photographs! Enjoy!
