Price: $625,000
Size: 2,060 square feet
Bedrooms: 4
Baths: 1.5

When viewed from the sidewalk, this Colonial on Webster Street flaunts major curb appeal. Follow the brick walkway inside, however, and you’ll find the home’s interior is in need of some updates.

This more than 2,000-square foot abode is a relatively affordable fixer upper at $303 per square foot. Situated steps from the harbor in East Boston’s Jeffries Point neighborhood, the 1839 home is a rare find. It’s been in the same family for more than five generations, and is now searching for new owners to restore it to its former glory.

The home offers four sizable bedrooms, one and a half bathrooms, and two offices, though its flexible floor plan makes customization possibilities pretty open. There’s a spacious formal living room on the first floor, which leads to another relatively large room via pocket doors. The house also has a formal dining room off of the kitchen, as well as moldings and high ceilings throughout.

Outside, the property boasts a highly coveted fenced-in backyard with a stone walkway. There’s plenty of room for a garden, an outdoor dining area, and more—bring on the renovation ideas.
