Why we have a crush on this property

Historical homes never fail to capture the hearts of house hunters. Even those on the search for a sparkling new build pause at a listing with some good old-fashioned crown molding.

This turquoise-tinted Victorian for sale in Galveston, Texas, is the kind of home that stops a buyer in their tracks. Built in 1877 by architect Nicholas Clayton, the four-bedroom house brims with period details. From the street, you get your fill of architectural flair in the form of double verandas, floor-to-ceiling windows with shutters, and painted trim.

Inside, there are more exquisite features to behold, such as intricate ceiling medallions, crown molding, soaring hand-stenciled ceilings, and coffered ceilings. The formal living and dining rooms, as well as the drawing room, are painted in shades of pink and blue. The kitchen, with its antique oven, open shelving, and butler’s pantry, boasts salmon-colored walls.

To top things off, the porches in the rear of the house overlook a bright blue (heated!) saltwater pool. There’s a side courtyard, too, with brick walkways that bob in and out of the garden.
