This four-story 1889 Queen Anne row house with an angled front needs some work, maybe quite a bit, but it’s got some original details including moldings and a quartet of fireplace mantels, and could be turned into something nice. It sits at 17 Agate Court, a cul-de-sac off Atlantic Avenue lined with Queen Anne homes built at the same time; its houses and those on adjacent Alice Court are landmarked.
While it looks like a three-story from the front, there is in fact a partial fourth floor, obscured from the street view. The additional space, which seems like a rooftop addition, is actually an original feature designed by architect Walter M. Coots for the developer, Florian Grosjean.
The listing is short on details and offers only a handful of photos. The house is configured as a two-family. We can’t tell you how, as there’s no floor plan offered — though the listing does assert that the layout is “remarkable.”
What we can tell you: there are five bedrooms and three baths in total, and 2,892 square feet of space, which presumably does not include the cellar, though again we can’t be sure.
No baths or kitchens are pictured; it seems a safe bet upgrading is called for, given the condition of what we’re shown. Are there original parquet floors beneath those ratty brown carpets? Another mystery, though one can hope.
Listed by Alain da Sylveira of Fillmore, the house is asking $1.3 million. Sound right, or does that seem ambitious given the condition and the location a half block from industrial Atlantic Avenue and its elevated tracks?
