'Tis rare that Somerville has a million-dollar listing. There are only four in the entire city right now, in fact, and the newest is the 2,652-square-foot house at 58 Central Street in Spring Hill.
The 6-BR, 4-BA Adelbert Carpenter House has been in the same family for 85 years and dates from the mid-1890s. It was seriously renovated in 2005, creating the Queen Anne-Shingle-Colonial Revival you see before you, with a mash of flourishes peppered with quaint touches (dig the stove, for instance). Yours for $1,100,000, porch and fenced yard included. Get.
