There are only so many Victorian brownstones in the South End, and this corner-lot home, built in 1865, has four stories of period detail and an additional unfinished garden level for endless development options. Currently, the first floor is a one-bedroom apartment, and the top three floors combine to make a triplex with four bedrooms and three baths. The home could be turned into a single-family residence, or divided into condos. In addition to the outdoor garden space, it has two side-by-side parking spaces.
