The hardwood-heavy house at 124 Blossom Street in Arlington’s Arlington Heights dates from 1922. It’s on sale for a relatively low $669,000 now through Coldwell Banker.

As mentioned, wood features prominently throughout the three-bedroom spread, including via the flooring and the window frames. The house also has—by Boston-area standards—a sizable back yard and back deck to boot (the lot’s more than 5,200 square feet).

As for 124 Blossom’s price, it really is relatively inexpensive compared with what prospective buyers might find only a little bit farther in, either in Cambridge or Boston, especially given its 1,474 square feet.

Then again, widen the lens a bit to the entire Boston region, and the house is just on the other side of expensive. A Greater Boston Association of Realtors report from January pegged the area’s median detached single-family price at $605,000. What’d you think?
