An era that stands the test of time

Victorian properties are currently in high demand. With their compelling features, spacious proportions and a design built to last, it’s not surprising that these properties receive on average four to five more offers than more modern property types. Not only that, Victorian homes resale value is strong and can command between a 10 to 15% premium.

Any home built during the reign of Queen Victoria (1837 – 1901) is classed as a Victorian property. During the industrial revolution, consecutive housing booms resulted in the build of millions of Victorian homes for all classes across towns and cities within the UK.

Victorian homes were built to last, and most are situated close to local amenities and transport links. Buying Victorian also comes with many advantages such as great quality workmanship, high ceilings, double reception rooms and the opportunity to extend and modernise.

Typical features of a Victorian property:

  • Sash windows

  • Intricate floor tiles
  • Elaborate cornicing
