Perched atop Observatory Hill in Cambridge, this lavender Victorian is “equal parts Royal Tenenbaums and Notting Hill,” according to listing agent Lauren Holleran. The 1873 Mansard-roofed abode features both carefully maintained period details, like crown molding and woodwork, and modern updates, like a dreamy walk-in closet and a renovated mudroom.

The property boasts an eye-catching yard, too, with sweet-smelling elements like flowering cherry trees and a wisteria-wrapped staircase. And if the $2.78 million price tag makes you jumpy, the house has an apartment that can be rented out. Holleran says it could fetch $2,000 per month, which would support an additional $375,000 in financed debt.
