CAMBRIDGE – At first glance, the “patina” on this 1872 Bracketed Italianate seems to bring an observer back in time, to the days when Grant was in the White House and Lewis Carroll ignited the country’s imagination with the publication of his Wonderland sequel “Through the Looking Glass”.

But upon closer inspection, one can’t seem to fail to notice that this house, a quiet oasis among the hustle and bustle of upscale Porter Square, is totally uninhabitable.

Priced wisely, this home not only boasts wood floors and convenient laundry hookups, it lacks “heat or water service”.

As if to say “Come, revel in me”, this house beckons that extraordinary individual visionary who can appreciate all that this special home has to offer and doesn’t mind adding the “Fit and Polish” reminiscent of days gone by.

Don’t miss this chance to own a true classic and by all means please bring your personal home renewal specialists along for the viewing.
