The immediate Harvard Square area in Cambridge doesn’t see too much turnover in single-family homes. And, it should be noted, the area doesn't have a lot of such residential properties to begin with; mostly it’s smaller condo addresses and mid-size apartment buildings.

So the market debut of the brick rowhouse at 25 Ware Street, just to the east of Harvard’s main campus, is something to note. The nine-room, 3,034-square-foot house dates from 1886, and includes the potential for seven bedrooms. There are also four bathrooms.

It’ll all cost ya, though: 25 Ware is asking $2,999,999 through Joanne VanStry. That’s a sizable sum, even for modern Cambridge. Again, though, it’s a rare bird in the city’s housing market.
