The 3,850-square-foot, 12-room Victorian at 17 Browning Road in Somerville’s Winter Hill last traded in November 1997 for about $490,000 in today’s money.
It had not been on the market until the last week of last month, when 17 Browning dropped through Michele Forester for $1,499,000 (oh, how things change).
The house, the bones of which date from 1860, includes a finished basement and two fireplaces. There is also a screened porch, a home theater, room for a billiard table, and the potential for five bedrooms. Check it out.
