On picturesque Claremont Street, a four-story, bow-front home is listed at just under $2.7 million. Built in 1883, the property includes original pine hardwood floors, three marble fireplaces, and bay windows on each level.
"The historic details of this home are completely in tact," says listing agent Megan Kopman. "The high-ceiling parlor with ornate crown moldings, and the front and rear of the house are just as they once were."
The home's entrance is on the parlor (second) level, and it opens to a spacious living room. Past the front staircase, a doorway leads to the eat-in kitchen. The top two levels of the home have four bedrooms and two marble baths, while the garden level below features two additional bedrooms, a bath, and an entrance to a landscaped stone patio.
"The home flows well and has beautiful light--it feel very open and generous," says Kopman.
