Top 5 Victorian Homes for Sale on the East End

The East End is well known for its rich history and maritime roots, but unlike Oak Bluffs in Martha’s Vineyard, our region rarely conjures thoughts of the colorful and ornamental homes that define Victorian architecture created between 1837 and 1901. The local real estate market just doesn’t have many of these painted ladies and gingerbread homes—and the ones that exist are rare treasures indeed. Here we present five tantalizing Victorians for sale on the East End.
