About This 1895 Victorian In Quincy Florida
Built in 1895, “The Shaw” house remains one of the most picturesque in the town, offering a perfect blend of history and charm. Undoubtedly the most eclectic, it is a Queen Anne style home that exhibits characteristics of both the Spindle-work and Free Classic Styles in its gable detailing, roof brackets, dentil molding, paneling, and classic columns. The detailing on the gables, roof brackets, dentil molding, and paneling adds depth and texture to the exterior, while the classic columns provide a touch of elegance and sophistication.
One cannot help but notice the intricate patterns and textures used in the shingle work on the turret and roof, which nods to the Shingle Style. Despite its age, the almost 5,800 square foot house has been impeccably maintained and stands tall and proud, exuding a sense of history and character. The attention to detail is evident in every corner of this beautiful home, from the intricate shingle-clad turret and roof to the patterned panels that adorn the exterior.
Step inside, and you’ll be greeted by soaring ceilings, elegant moldings, and original hardwood floors that transport you back in time. The spacious rooms are filled with natural light, creating a warm, inviting atmosphere that makes you feel right at home. The interior also showcases various stunning period features, including intricate woodwork, decorative molding, and stained glass windows.

The modern kitchen has been updated with all the necessary amenities while retaining its historic charm. A charming wrap-around porch offers stunning views of the surrounding neighborhood, providing the perfect place to relax and unwind after a long day. If you want a home rich in history, character, and charm, look no further because this rare gem seamlessly blends different architectural styles to create a unique and timeless masterpiece.
