In last week’s article 'Victorian Houses – Part 1 - Dwellings of character but not without their problems!' I discussed how Victorian houses seem to maintain a great deal of character and history compared to the vast majority of houses that we build today. Despite this I also considered the difficulties that would have been encountered by those living in Victorian houses prior to the introduction of some of the more modern facilities that we take for granted today, such as insulated walls, central heating, internal WC and bathrooms etc.
This week I would like to focus on some of the typical characteristics that make Victorian Houses different from most other types of houses. In Part 3 next week I will consider some of the typical defects that may be found in Victorian dwellings. If you are considering buying or renting a Victorian house you may find this information of interest.
