PROS This large 1900 Shingle Victorian sits on a pretty side street behind Ashmont Station. Enter through a cheerful enclosed porch into a foyer with original trim and woodwork. The living room fireplace is cemented shut, but the dining room’s pocket doors and square turret compensate in the charm department. The kitchen is roomy but dated, and there’s a half bath/laundry room off the hall. Upstairs, four bedrooms (one with its own sunny turret footprint) share a full bathroom; on the third floor are two more bedrooms and a full bath. Off the deck, the backyard boasts a water feature and large mural. CONS An offer has been accepted on this property.
