This rowhouse dating from the 1860s in the Hub's No. 1 neighborhood, the South End, has been on the market for well over a year now. Its 2010 debut followed a two-year renovation that retained period architectural details, including the stairwell and the original floors of pumpkin pine plank (say that three times fast). Otherwise, it's got 5 bedrooms, 3.5 bathrooms, heated parking, an elevator and 8 fireplaces (though two are decorative). The 3,500-square-foot spread retails for an uncut $4,460,000.
