Victorian Villas

Victorian Villas

During the Victorian era, a rise in population meant a property boom with a large number of homes built to cater to the growing population. Many homes still stand today and are as beautiful and grand as they were back then. We have gathered our favourite Victorian villas starting from £550,000.

1. Brampton,Cumbria, £735,000

A beautifully presented 6-bedroom period property set in impressive Victorian gardens, located on the outskirts of Hallbankgate. With uninterrupted views, it oozes beauty. Also, having good transport links to nearby Brampton and Carlisle and within commuting distance of Newcastle upon Tyne.

2. Witheridge,Tiverton, £699,950

Built in approximately 1850, this very substantial detached Victorian vicarage was used until 1984. Standing adjacent to the very impressive Church of St John the Baptist, Hope House enjoys a unique setting being in the very heart of this thriving village yet the 1.76 acres of garden and open fields to the rear afford a relatively good level of privacy for such a central position.

A late Victorian detached Cotswold stone house, which has been lovingly extended by its current owner to create a generous four bedroom property, situated in a rural position, enjoying a quiet location backing onto open farmland.

5. Fringford,Bicester, £1,350,000

A substantial stone built Victorian property set in a secluded location, surrounded by 13.2 acres of woodland and paddock land. Cotmore Cottage is believed to date back to 1865, formally built as the coach house for nearby Cotmore House. An unusual yet distinctive property with natural stone elevations, under a tile roof with stone and brick reveals to the wooden framed arched window and door openings typical of the period.

6. Weymouth,Dorset, £1,350,000

An outstanding example of a Victorian mansion house built in 1890 of natural stone elevations under a pitched clay tiled roof, with some partial tile-hung elevations. Particularly impressive architectural features include a decoratively carved parapet forming the entrance, impressive solid stone perpendicular arched doorways, trefoil windows and an octagonal glass-sided turret enjoying uninterrupted views out to sea.

7. Westgate-On-Sea,£550,000

Whether you are looking for a permanent home or a lovely seaside retreat for weekends and holidays, this charming Victorian villa in Westgate, built in 1875, could be the one. It is only 80 yards from the seafront and St. Mildred’s Bay and along to West Bay and, with plenty of flexible accommodation, the house is ideal as a family home or you might even consider indulging in a spot of ‘bed and breakfast’.

8. WestFarleigh, Kent, £795,000

This imposing Victorian home is delightfully positioned on the fringes of the pretty village of West Farleigh close to the banks of the picturesque River Medway.

A superb and unique example of a sympathetically converted Chapel. The original building is Victorian, dating back to 1871, and was converted in the 1980's. The current owner has kept the Victorian grandeur, making Nupend a wonderful country home with many unique and elegant features.
