There’s nothing better than an elaborately ornate victorian home. All of those fabulous wood details, (often called gingerbread!) wraparound porches, turrets and other adornments are truly fit for a queen. I, personally, can’t get enough of the curb appeal offered by a Queen Anne dripping with details. These are eye-catching from the street and positively mind-blowing from inside, bringing you all of the carved wood and stained glass you could possibly ask for.

The Twiss House, built c. 1907, was designed by George F. Barber and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Located in a small, but fast-growing, community.
