A couple in Sharon, Mass., have "modded" their Victorian house into a steampunk showcase, complete with brass and crystal versions of such non-19th-century conveniences as a wall telephone and a home entertainment center; gallery below.

Here's what Planet Oddity said:

If you have a passion for Steampunk then Bruce and Melanie Rosenbaums home is an outstanding place on earth. The couple has authentically restored their Victorian home retaining its rich heritage and classic beauty while completely modernizing the homes systems. They changed the functional layout of their Victorian home to accommodate the conveniences available in modern homes.

They started their own Mod Vic (Modern Victorian) Home Restoration in the year 2007 mainly aimed at combining Victorian high designs and craftsmanship of that era with modern functionality and convenience. Bruce and Melanie Rosenbaum share a common love for Steampunk aesthetic and made good use of this in renovating their home.
