The bones of the 12-room, 7,413-square-foot Victorian at 9 Walnut Avenue in Cambridge’s tony Avon Hill neighborhood date from 1887.
But the house has been meticulously restored—so well, in fact, that in 2010 the Cambridge Historical Commission awarded it a preservation prize.
Aside from its design, the house is massive for the city, with the potential for six bedrooms. There are five full bathrooms, too, and an elevator to three floors. A cupola, with stairs, crowns the affair.
It’s not cheap: $8.25 million through Coldwell Banker.
