Eric, just drive by the comps and see, if they’re similar homes.
FYI - victorian homes are usually clapboard clad houses built in the late 1800’s/early 1900’s. Some of them are called “Queen Anne’s” , which a lot of times have a turret on one of their corners, but not always.
The typical victorian has 10’ or higher ceilings, big rooms (15’x15’ or bigger), hardwood floors, fireplaces for heating. They typically have a center hallway with bedrooms on 1 side and LR, DR and Kitchen on the other. The bath, a lot of times, has been added on.
Now, if this is a victorian, check out the roof. They nused to do the roof with cedar shakes and once they had leaks, they roofed over with Fish scale shingles. If you ahve to do the roof, then be aware, that it is more expensiv than redoing a standard roof, since there’s a lot of tear off and you will have to add decking.
