We have a 1914 foursquare. It has all of the classic attributes of a typical foursquare:

a)2 1/2 stories
b)hipped roof with a hipped dormer in the front and the back
c)floor plan layout consistent with the design.
d)front porch across the entire front of house

What is different than any other I have seen is the two front corners of the house have been changed to be angled at 45 degrees kind of like a bay. Also, it has a large foyer with a beautiful oak staircase with Victorian style posts and spindles. The exterior wall in the dining room (as well as the bedroom above it) is a shallow bay with 45 degree angled sides. Lastly, in addition to the front stairs, there is a rear stair leading from the second floor down to a small foyer in the very back of the house where the back door is as well as the door/stairs to the basement, and a door into the dining room.

So, is it a Victorian Foursquare?

Recently purchased a home that matches the exact description above except it has:
Five rooms on each floor
Room with rounded bay type windows on exterior end of room between foyer and kitchen on 1st floor and staircase and bathroom on 2nd floor
2nd set of steps in dining room that lead to upstairs
3 formers with two windows

Is it a Foursquare or a Victorian?
Have spent hours trying to find the answer and the model.

Please help.
