One of the most beautiful architectural styles that came from the turn of the century is the classic Victorian style. These homes can be found all throughout the Southern California inland towns by are rarely found still remaining by the beach. Oceanside, California has a few select Victorian style properties that still exist and retain the historic intergrity when then they were first built in the early 1900's. A perfect example of this is a Victorian home that is currently for sale and located at 636 Rockledge Street in the historic Seaside neighborhood in Oceanside. The home was built in 1902 and is well known as the Charles Libby House which is also on the National Register of Historic Places and is pictured below.
The property was carefully restored in 1989 to keep in character in the integrity of the Victorian architecture. There is a lot of history that goes along with this property. The current spot where the home sits is not the original location where the home was built. Back in 1977, the home was moved to it's current location by going down small streets to get to it's existing location at Rockledge Street. This of course is not the only Victorian home that can be found in the Oceanside area as many do come on the market for sale from time to time. Neighboring beach town of Carlsbad is also a great place to look for these historic houses.
