On the Market: One of Dorchester’s Oldest Homes
444 Gallivan Blvd.
Size: 2,480 square feet
Everything that makes up a historic New England home is part of this house in Adam’s Village. With fireplaces to warm almost every room, crown moulding, recessed windows, antique lock-and-key doors, original wide pine floors, and a large front staircase (all circa 1790), it fits the bill for standard Federal-style construction. But at 226 years old, this antique red house does need some hard work and TLC before another family can settle in. What it lacks in bells and whistles, though, is made up for with charm, privacy, and agreeable price tag.
