    Just steps from Dell Avenue Rock urban wild space, this Queen Anne Victorian with its elaborate shingling is painted pale green, cream, and maroon. The interior also has classic Victorian attributes, including 9-foot ceilings and oak floors. In the living and dining rooms, the original floors are parquet, with blond oak highlighted by inlays of dark mahogany. The dining room has a working fireplace with carved oak mantel and a built-in china cabinet. The updated kitchen has a prep island, black granite counters, Shaker-style cherry cabinets, and tall wainscoting. There is a butler’s pantry with sink, a showered bath, and a wall of storage shelves in a rear hallway.


    The master on the second floor is in the tower, giving it a deep-bay window nook. The two children’s bedrooms are comfortably sized and have adequate closets. The family bath has a claw-foot tub and shower. The fifth bedroom, on the third floor, is a two-room suite with the tower forming a circular office next to the sleeping area. There are built-in wooden book shelves. The front and back yards are rich with flowering plants. The basement is unfinished. A freestanding one-car garage is metal. All windows are updated.

    Patricia Tierney of Tierney Real Estate Group in Hyde Park will hold an open house 1 to 3 p.m. June 23.
