The interior takes advantage of original features, with the living room housing a white fireplace with tiled surround and a separate bay window nook through an elaborate scroll-framed entryway. In the bay nook, and in the other rooms, the windows feature original stained glass lunettes. Tall wooden pocket doors open into the tile-floored eat-in kitchen with a built-in wine rack and walk-in pantry. Between its generous size, outdoor space and Victorian features, the unit recently sold for $50,000 above its asking price.
