Davis Square fixer-upper on sale for $995,000 includes four bedrooms

It’s a rare such offering in the increasingly expensive Somerville enclave—and for good reason

Somerville’s Davis Square is not known for its deals on single-family homes. The enclave’s grand Victorians and Queen Annes—and Queen Anne Victorians—tend to run into the seven figures and stay there.

But 15 Campbell Park is different. This 1,640-square-foot, two-fireplace Queen Anne Vic is asking $995,000 through William Raveis’ Elizabeth Crowley. Why the relatively low price? Because the house dating from 1892 needs work.

Still, at that tag, it’s quite a find and there is quite a bit of potential in its bones too. For one thing, 15 Campbell has four bedrooms; for another, there’s the original woodwork and stained glass. Plus, there’s a back deck and yard, and the house is close to the Red Line.
