The bones of the 13-room, 5,788-square-foot Dorchester Victorian at 18 Melville Avenue in the neighborhood’s St. Marks area date from 1889.
It’s a grand affair. Six of those 13 rooms are bedrooms; there are five fireplaces, too, and front and side porches. French doors throughout further open up the house—known in the neighborhood as the Terhune House.
And then there’s the potential for a billiards room.
