Why are Victorian Houses in Norfolk Sought After?

27/01/2019

You want a new home, but you want one with Victorian charm, well get in the queue because here in Norfolk this is a popular request.



We have many customers who only want a Victorian home and will not entertain the idea of looking at any other type. They love the high ceilings, sash windows, double reception rooms, beautiful fireplaces: and restoring these properties to their original beauty is never a chore. Victorian homes hold their price and many customers who want one are happy to pay more to get their dream home.



The Victorians built their homes to last, with stunning features, and oozing with character.



Dating back to Queen Victoria the homes were often rows of terraced houses built in the wake of the industrial revolution. Manufacturing jobs meant more people could afford houses and there was a rise of the middle class.



There was a time though that Victorian homes weren’t in fashion; back in the 1960’s people didn’t have the same love for the Victorian house, they were frowned upon as fuddy-duddy. In the 1970s homeowners were ripping out fireplaces and covering up cornices and the floor tiles. Luckily for us by the 1980’s we’d fallen back in love with Victorian homes, and now we all have massive respect for them.
