Photos of Restored Victorian: A House Reborn

By Old House Journal

Photos by Greg Kozawa

Queen Anne 's exterior
The Queen Anne 's exterior (pictured after the restoration) appears exactly as it did before the fire.

8'-tall pocket door
Millwork framing the 8'-tall pocket door leading to the dining room is new, custom-cut to match surviving samples, but blends seamlessly with the antique door.

The dining room millwork
The dining room millwork was pieced together from original moldings salvaged throughout the house.

The kitchen redone
In the kitchen, a careful combination of state-of-the-art appliances and period-perfect fixtures (along with some cabinets designed to look like furniture) blend to create a space that feels as though it evolved naturally over time.

Museum picture rail
The Arciform team added a museum picture rail, authentic to the house's timeframe, for hanging artwork without marking up walls.

A reproduction tub and sink
A reproduction tub and sink are flanked by beadboard in the master bath.

Downstairs bathroon
In the downstairs bathroom, a corner toilet saves space.

Octopus mosaic in the show stall
An octopus mosaic, created from marble hex tile by artist Margaret Kuhn, traverses the shower pan. "It represents Victorian whimsy," says designer Anne De Wolf.
