Lacy trim gives this Victorian style update an eye-catching front facade. Slender windows flank French double doors that open into a living room only partially separated from the kitchen/dining area. A woodstove or gas fireplace nestles into a corner near the kitchen. The owners' suite is on the main floor.

Updated Victorian is charming, efficient
The Pearson's lacy trim creates an eye-catching front facade. Delicate spindles rim the second floor balcony, scallops outline the eaves, and gingerbread cutouts serve as ornamental supports for the porch roof. Guest designer Rodney Pfotenhauer created the plans for this update of a small Queen Anne-style Victorian.
It's easy to imagine taking it easy in an old-fashioned wooden swing on the Pearson's porch, sipping a drink and reading a book, or simply watching the world go by.
Slender multipaned windows flank wide multipaned double doors that open into a living room only partially separated from the kitchen/dining area at the rear. Stairs to the upper level are to the left, just inside the door, and a woodstove or gas fireplace nestles into a corner near the kitchen.
Family and friends can enjoy the warmth and flames while seated at the raised eating/conversation bar that extends the kitchen's peninsula counter and houses the sink and dishwasher. Washer and dryer are close at hand, but easily hidden behind accordion doors. A broom closet is tucked between this alcove and the back door. The owners could build a deck or patio, if desired.
A bay window expands the Pearson's master suite, the only main floor bedroom. This window bay makes an ideal location for a window seat, desk, or display area. Other features here include a walk-in closet, plus a fully enclosed shower and toilet. The lavatory is separate, allowing two people to use the facilities at once and still have privacy.
The two bedrooms upstairs each have a walk-in closet and share a bathroom outfitted with a combination tub and shower.
