Elliott-Thayer House

We’re kind of obsessed with the gorgeous flowers snaking around the porch of this Alameda, California home. But a longer look made us notice all the curved edges and carved details, which beautifully balance all the harder angles of this 1892-built Victorian.

It was built for $4,200, with W.E. Elliott and I.E. Thayer (an exporter) from San Francisco as the original owners.
