When Washington State was just starting to come into its own, there were certain architectural styles that came with it. Ornate Victorian mansions were among the initial styles to be built by some of the region's wealthiest landowners and businesspeople, including the Yeslers, Dennys, Borens, and Blaines, in Seattle and beyond.

Even our less-opulent housing had ornate Victorian details—for example, a long-gone set of rowhouses in Belltown.

After the Great Seattle Fire, styles slowly shifted towards Romanesque, Tudor and Foursquare construction. While Washington homes moved on, there's still quite a few of those Victorian beauties left standing and at any given moment, and some of them are on the open market.

And, of course, the older they get, the harder they are to find. The last Victorian homes built in a vaguely Victorian era are just about 110 years old, so keep an eye out for them while you can. (They’ll always be a little easier to find in Port Townsend, though.)

1. 2405 Elizabeth Street, Bellingham

Copy Link
2405 Elizabeth St
Bellingham, WA 98225

While it’s not the Roeder Home, this 1896 four-bedroom has something to do with Bellingham’s founding family, announced with a plaque above the door. Elaborate interior decor includes wallpaper, ceiling designs, and stained glass, and a bare-bones, beadboard-coated attic room has a nook inside one of the gables. A 10,000-square-foot lot means a massive yard, too—and it has a tea garden and a gazebo. It’s listed for $798,000.

2. 1819 Eighth Street, Anacortes

Copy Link
1819 8th St
Anacortes, WA 98221

Designed by Anacortes’s first known architect, J. C. Jepson, this 1901 home has huge windows overlooking the water—including in the turret. It’s asking $1.09 million.

3. 336 Fillmore Street, Port Townsend

Copy Link
336 Fillmore St
Port Townsend, WA 98368

This Port Townsend home from 1900 has a very Victorian turret and a very much less-Victorian set of solar panels on the roof. It might not be the top choice of people who want a fully-Victorian lifestyle, but it might help bring your power bill back to 20th century levels. It’s listed for $1.85 million.

4. 313 Walker Street, Port Townsend

Copy Link
313 Walker St
Port Townsend, WA 98368

In Port Townsend, this massive 1891 nine-bedroom Victorian with a turret and water views is listed for $1.25 million. This includes much of the original millwork, including bannisters on a semi-open staircase. Bathrooms still have clawfoot tubs, and a gazebo sits in the backyard. A finished basement—although it still has brick walls—has been transformed into a billiards room.

5. 2017 26th Street, Everett

Copy Link
2017 26th St
Everett, WA 98201

This Everett duplex, built in 1892, has a large front porch and an airy balcony embedded in a large dormer. The lower unit has two bedrooms and the upper has one; while the interior appears to have maintained a lot of the original millwork, it’s been painted, and the current decor is very pink. It’s listed for $440,000.

6. 20304 99th Avenue SE, Maltby

Copy Link
20304 99th Ave SE
Snohomish, WA 98296

Up in the Snohomish County town of Maltby, this 1895 farmhouse has a charming cupola and other well-maintained millwork—but it’s been remodeled for livability and more space, including a finished attic. It sits on half an acre ready for gardening and other outdoor recreation, too. It’s listed for $565,000.

7. 1419 N 51st Street, Seattle

1419 N 51st St
Seattle, WA 98103

Built in 1909, this exceedingly grand, well-maintained home up by Woodland Park Zoo has latticed bay windows and both a classic wraparound porch and a large upper balcony. The asking price is $1.3 million.

8. 1012 2nd Avenue N

Copy Link
1012 2nd Ave N
Seattle, WA 98119

This home on the south slope of Queen Anne was likely first built as a luxury home when it first popped up in 1902, and it’s been kept up as a luxury home. In its modern form, it has a polished exterior, a home theater, and upscale finishes, while maintaining some original bones and millwork. The price matches, at $2.7 million.

9. 2610 E Aloha Street, Seattle

Copy Link
2610 E Aloha St
Seattle, WA 98112

While this house near the Arboretum still looks like 1906 on the outside, a remodel in the 1980s added skylights and a whimsical interior—plus a new foundation. It’s asking $865,000.

10. 103 23rd Avenue Unit B
