On the Market: A Renovated Victorian on Fort Hill
A new slate roof tops off this Roxbury residence.
132 Thornton Street, Roxbury
Size: 3,084 square feet
Behold the rare opportunity to own a Roxbury Victorian. This one for sale on Fort Hill is divided into two units, both of which have been recently renovated. Before you scoff at the million-plus price tag, consider that the property totals a whopping 3,084 square feet. That’s twice the size of your average city condo.
Many of the home’s 1905 details have been preserved, including crown moldings, high ceilings, and ornate mantels. The house boasts original doors with recreated hardware, as well as reclaimed barn wood floors. It’s also topped off with a new slate Mansard roof.
Inside, one of the units’ kitchens features exposed brick walls. Large windows let sunlight stream into bright, airy rooms, while in-unit laundry graces both homes. Around back, a new addition to the purple-and-black Victorian frames a charming brick patio and garden.
