Victorian Splendor

Originally designed by J. Merrill Brown in 1887, this Queen Anne style home sits proudly in Cambridge's Avon Hill Historic District. Past was blended with present in the restoration of this property to its original 19th century elegance. The design satisfied historical requirements with its attention to authentic detailsand materials; it also satisfied the wishes of the family who has been connected to the house through several generations.

Two questions: What are the dimensions of the toilet room? What are the dimensions of the rest of the bathroom? I really like this layout... but I'm not sure if we could fit everything.

You are right about alteration of color on computer! I thought it was in the tan family not gray. Beautiful anyway, but I can't use gray. Beautiful job!

Thanks! and yes exactly. Between light and shadow of the room, the flash of the photography and then uploading to the website, the tones of the colors can change.
