PROS On a tranquil street two blocks from the elementary school and commuter rail, this 1895 Victorian beckons with colorful accents and a welcoming porch. Step through the big entry foyer (with a powder room beneath the stairs), and the connected living, family, and dining rooms feel almost ballroom-scale, with high-class accents to match: mahogany wall panels, dramatic light fixtures, whitewashed fireplace, and built-in dry bar. The new kitchen features quartz counters, island with cooktop, and stainless appliances; the back deck overlooks a large, sloping yard. Four second-floor bedrooms plus a dressing room share an updated bath. The top floor holds two bedrooms, an office, and a bath. CONS No garage; laundry in basement.
