Separated from the brick sidewalk by stately wrought-iron gates, this stunning Second Empire home for sale flaunts major curb appeal. Built in 1865, the pale blue manor in Cambridge’s Dana Hill neighborhood not only exhibits stained glass windows, a grand portico, and ornate cornices and trim, but it’s flanked by flowering magnolia and dogwood trees.

Its interior is equally as impressive. An airy living room with built-in bookshelves makes enough room for a piano, and beyond it, there’s a study and a fireplaced den. Off of the kitchen, a breakfast nook boasts a Juliet balcony, plus several large floor-to-ceiling windows.

The home totals six bedrooms, including two inside a top-floor apartment. A sliding door in the apartment leads to a generous roof deck, and below, a one-car garage and a long driveway offer plenty of space for parking.
