With the charm of yesteryear front and center, these two Victorian homes are long on the appeal that buyers of historic homes are searching for. The $2.8 million stunner in Irvington is a rare find, with more than two acres of property right in the village. (Also included is a two-bedroom, two-bath guest cottage.) The restored and renovated home combines original craftsmanship — fireplaces, moldings, chestnut flooring, and built-in cabinetry — with updated modern amenities, including an all-new kitchen with radiant floors and a Viking six-burner stove. For roughly half the listing price, the Pelham Victorian boasts prestige of its own, with architecturally rich moldings, multi-paned windows, and multiple ornate fireplaces. The large home offers many bonus living spaces, including a wraparound porch, huge dining deck, and an additional 1,100 sq. ft., lower-level recreation space. Its location on a quiet corner near the elementary school will appeal to many buyers.
