The 15-room, 6,593-square-foot colonial revival at 26 Elmwood Avenue just off West Cambridge’s Brattle Street dates from 1899.
Inside, though, the house looks thoroughly contemporary. It’s airy and big, with a finished basement, eight fireplaces, and the potential for six bedrooms. And the driveway has the necessary wiring to support electric cars.
Given the location and this scope, 26 Elmwood doesn’t come cheap: It’s asking $5.485 million through Compass.
