This Queen-Anne Victorian home was built in 1897 and was one of the earliest structures in the original square mile of Grand Junction.
The house survived through many decades but over time it had aged and was left in very poor condition. It was set to be condemned in the early 1960's when a World War II veteran and his wife purchased it. They stabilized the structure by lifting it and placing a foundation underneath. In doing so, they breathed new life into the house and owned it for 40+ years. They raised their kids in the home and even hosted the wedding of their daughter in the living room.
We purchased this house as newlyweds in 2006 and started some much-needed renovations. Slowly but surely, we remodeled each room in the house, attempting to honor the original character but bring modern-day comfort. We listed this home as a vacation rental in 2013 and it has been booked almost every weekend since!
