House of the Day: 250 Cumberland Street


This is the kind of property we find irresistible: An estate condition wood frame that’s been in the same family for almost 60 years. It’s on a landmark block, so hopefully whoever buys it will have the funds to restore the front exterior to its previously large-windowed, shingled glory. It’s a single family house and has tons of goodies inside, including plaster moldings, beautiful mid-19th century door surrounds, pocket doors, marble mantels, wide plank floors on the top floor — plus the original windows in the rear, a back porch and a garden. The roof and water heater date from 2008, and the boiler is new. What do you think of it for $1,799,000?
