House of the Day: 536 Monroe Street

This house has some amazing architectural details, although it’s going to take a bit of polishing to restore it to its former glory. A buyer might want to undo some unfortunate alterations, such as exposed brick, popcorn ceilings, and a modern tile floor in one of the bathrooms.

We think it’ll be worth it: The house has some exuberant Aesthetic Movement details you don’t see every day, including kicky fireplace tile, elaborate crown moldings over the doors and windows, mahogany inlay floors, impressive geometric ceiling medallions, seven original light fixtures, and scenic stained glass in the bathrooms.

Happily, it also has a relatively new roof, boiler, windows and hot water heater. Do you think it’s a good deal for $1,200,000?
