The 11-room, 3,376-square-foot house at 102 Thurston Street in Somerville’s Winter Hill has been in the same family for generations, according to its listing, which is marketing the circa-1870 house as a redevelopment or renovation opportunity.

It comes with period details throughout as well as quite a scope for Somerville. There is the potential for seven bedrooms, for instance, and the house’s lot is more than 6,300 square feet. Plus, it’s all near the future Gilman Station stop of the extended Green Line.

As for the price of this opportunity, that is a cool $1 million through Coldwell Banker. A recent Greater Boston Association of Realtors report on closed deals in January pegged the median sales price for detached single-families in the immediate Boston region, including Somerville, at $723,750. What’s you think?
