Back in the middle of the last decade, the long-abandoned free-standing wood house at 56 Cambridge Place was purchased and then renovated, with a large rear-addition thrown into the mix. As evidenced by the front porch and side yards, however, the project was never completely finished, and now it’s on the market for $2,250,000. It’s a pretty unusual opportunity, albeit one that will require some money and work: The Civil War-era house has 4,600 square feet of space and sits on a lot that is 50 by 100 feet. There are no interior photos of the house, only mention of double-height ceilings in the living room overlooked by a mezzanine. It’ll be interesting to see how this one fares price-wise.
