The three-level, 2,109-square-foot Victorian at 18 Mill Street in Dorchester’s Clam Point retains vestiges of its birth in 1893. There’s the woodwork and the ceramic tile as well as a lot of the parquet floor.

But the three-bedroom spread has been updated and added to, of course, and the paint job in the entry foyer and along the staircase pops in particular. And there’s further potential with the capacious third floor and its peaked ceilings.

All of this—plus a garage, a deck, a yard, and an unfinished basement—is asking $615,000, or $291 a square foot, through Arborview Realty. That’s a competitive asking for Boston overall. The latest figures from the Greater Boston Association of Realtors pegged the city’s median detached house sales price at $655,000 and the average price per foot at $413.
