The bones of the 12-room, 3,648-square-foot house at 480 Walnut Street in Newton’s Newtonville date from 1846.

There are signs of the Victorian’s duration throughout the house, including the living room’s original ceiling and the design of the five bedrooms. There is also an 80-year-old working Glenwood stove in the kitchen for an added touch of antiquity.

Given the Gothic-Greek revival’s size and location, it does not come cheap: 480 Walnut is asking $1,649,000 through Greer Tan Swiston. Though, then again, at $452 a square foot, that might be considered a deal in the Boston region these days.
