The seven-room, two-fireplace Victorian at 17 Old Harbor Street in Southie’s Telegraph Hill dates from 1900, and has been updated while retaining some of that 120-year-old charm.

The house—on sale now through Compass for $850,000—includes the original mantels for said fireplaces as well as much of the original flooring. Those updates include the modern kitchen, of course, and central air. There’s an unfinished basement too with a washer-dryer.

And! There are a couple of parking spots for the place on sale separately. Those are asking $100,000 each.

As for the tag for the house, it’s probably on the less expensive side for Boston relatively speaking. The median sales price for downtown townhouses, including in South Boston, was $1,311,500 at the end of 2019, according to appraiser Miller Samuel and brokerage Douglas Elliman.
