As you enter this one-of-a-kind historic home you instantly become a part of the past, the present, and the future. Built in 1901, this Victorian Craftsman is a true example of classically-renovated Steampunk design as it preserves and enhances the best of the Victorian and Arts & Crafts periods while incorporating the modern conveniences and luxuries expected. Steampunk design is a mixture of elegance and machinery where modern Victorian gadgetry and inventions can be found. According to the current homeowner and founder of the company ModVic, Bruce Rosenbaum, “It’s a re-imagination of history.”
36 Pleasant Street is a particular space of expression where you can experience the blending of two concepts into a unique third: the best parts of a bygone era infused with the comforts and technology of the present day – creating a totally new ‘third voice’ or new form and function in a living space.

Property History (excerpt from the current owners)
Melanie and I started our home restoration business, ModVic (Modern Victorian), in June of 2007. Our vision was to combine the best of the Victorian, Arts & Crafts and Industrial ages by fusing modern technologies and appliances into Victorian elegance, craftsmanship and design. The idea was simple - combine opposites: old with new; past with the present; form and function-- to create something new, functional, relevant and purposeful.
It’s now come to be called: Steampunk Art & Design. Steampunk as an aesthetic, at its essence, is a design solution with divergent thinking, innovative and imaginative designs and elegant infusion of all time periods and functions. 36 Pleasant Street is a particular space of expression where you can experience the blending of two concepts into a unique third – the best parts of a bygone era infused with the comforts and technology of the present day - creating a totally new ‘third voice’ or new form and function in a living space.
The home creates a sensory experience – and it’s not just about getting a final result, but it is also about intent and process. The house is not just unusual or decorative - it’s a creative, functional design solution that helps you, your family and guests feel comfortable and welcome, peak curiosity, have new purpose and be inspired to adapt.
By moving into 36 Pleasant - my hope is that you will be inspired to remake your own reality, repurpose your own life, transform problems into creative solutions – make people dare to imagine things and speculate on the potential in the objects, homes, lives and world around us.
