New, 2 comments

House from 1885 asking $899,000 now

The 2,870-square-foot Queen Anne Romanesque Revival at 35 Melville Avenue in always-desirable Dorchester dates from 1885, when Arthur Vinal, then Boston's official architect, designed it for his own family. He included flourishes such as a Syrian arch to frame a stained-glass window nook (there are 31 stained-glass panels in the house total); 10-foot cove ceilings; and four carved-tile fireplaces.

The 4-BR, 2-BA just dropped on the sales market through Gibson Sotheby's for $899,000.
