The bones of the 15-room, 4,653-square-foot Victorian at 33 Highland Road between Powder House Square and Magoun Square in Somerville date from 1900, and the house retains a lot of its original details. Note in particular the woodwork throughout and the decorative fireplace in the entry foyer.

The house also has the potential for four bedrooms, and there are four bathrooms of varying size. There are two sunrooms two.

All of this, plus the location, do not come cheap, of course. The Vic is asking $1.65 million through Coldwell Banker’s Sara Rosenfeld. For comparison, detached single-families in the Boston region in January were selling for a median price of $605,000.
