In Winter Hill, the part of Somerville that gets its name from a 120-foot slope in the neighborhood, an 1865-built bow-front home has hidden potential. The home is located on a corner lot, and its painted brick exterior and period mansard roof promise of future curb appeal. While dated paneling and formica countertops abound, the home has original hardwood floors, a sturdy staircase, and a wood burning fireplace with a brick surround. The property also has a two-car garage and a patio.
