A historic home makes our hearts swoon every time, so it’s no surprise that this four-bedroom, four-bath home in St. Augustine, Florida caught our attention. Built in 1887, the Hibbard House is a striking example of Queen Anne Victorian architecture, and the home has been renovated with authenticity in mind.

The impressive facade includes a welcoming front porch that measures over 700 square feet—perfect for lemonades and lazy breezes. Inside, top-notch woodworking is seen throughout, from the carved front doors to the elaborate central staircase. Intricate mill work adds originality, as does three fireplaces and heart pine flooring.

Other details include authentic vintage door knobs and hinges, restored double-hung windows, and reproduction light fixtures. But the most intriguing architectural element of the home is the tower room, an eight foot by eight foot space that has an unusual arrangement of original windows.
