House of the Day: Pristine Freestanding Victorian in Midwood


    We don’t often come across houses this spectacular. A freestanding circa-1905 Victorian with a porch at 770 Rugby Road in Midwood, the house has oodles of woodwork in seemingly perfect original condition, diagonal flooring with inlaid borders, coffered ceilings, original mantels, and intricate stained glass.

    There are also early electric light fixtures, original unpainted cabinets in the kitchen, a period stove, and an old-fashioned style bath, although the mechanicals have been updated. The roof and boiler are new.

    There are six bedrooms and 2.5 baths over three floors, as well as a two-car garage. It’s close to the B and Q trains, according to the listing.

    What do you think of it and the ask of $2,195,000?
