On the Market: An 1850s Jewel in Somerville
This Italianate Victorian is less than a 10-minute walk from Sullivan Square station.
18 Mount Vernon Street, Somerville
Size: 1,530 square feet
It’s sad, but it’s true: You’re lucky if you can score a condo for $699,000 in Somerville, nevermind an antique single-family. That’s part of what makes this Italianate Victorian for sale so special—it’s somewhat of an agreeable price for the neighborhood. That, and it happens to be less than a 10-minute walk from the T.
Nestled on a side street near Sullivan Square station, the 1850 home stuns inside and out. A gracious entryway opens to a foyer where the home’s preservation work is put on display. Look left to see period pocket doors in the living room, then right to glimpse restored woodwork and built-ins. The kitchen, meanwhile, boasts more modern updates, like new appliances and a subway tile backsplash. Continue through the house to reach the fenced-in backyard, complete with a brick patio area and several raised garden beds.
