Airy Arlington Victorian with 12 rooms asks $1.5 million

The house dates from 1915, but has a more 19th-century look

The airy and bright frame Victorian at 72 Gray Street in Arlington’s Jason Heights area dates from 1915, but the house has an even older feel to it—in part because some of that original detail remains, including in some of the flooring, the two fireplaces, and the entry foyer.

The spread is a monster by Boston-area standards too: 3,000 square feet over three floors, with three bathrooms and the potential for as many as five bedrooms. There’s a suite with a kitchen on the third floor; and a sun room and an eat-in kitchen.

The size and the location mean a hefty price for Arlington: $1.5 million, or $500 a square foot through Leading Edge Real Estate. What’d you think?
