The Remaking of a Queen Anne in Boston

 

A thorough overhaul with soothing hues and modern-day touches celebrates this home’s Victorian roots

These longtime condo owners were looking for a single-family home in which to raise their two young children, and stumbled upon this Queen Anne in a suburb of Boston. While the home offered ample space for their growing family, much of its architectural charm had been stripped away during previous remodels.

This extensive and sensitive renovation was also chronicled in the 36th season of the This Old House TV show. Now, it shows off the home’s Victorian roots, infused with some contemporary design elements for a fresh and elegant look.

This Queen Anne home certainly hadn’t been treated like a queen. A series of bad renovations had stripped away her beauty and left her looking washed-out. After a thorough renovation, she’s regained some of her stateliness, especially in the dramatic dining room, which respects the home’s Victorian architecture while feeling fresh and updated.

A 2015 special project featured on This Old House TV called the “Belmont Victorian”, read the full story on the dining room transformation HERE.
