The flier says:

“Top quality restoration of a classic Victorian Bayfront, on a Best Block. Period details (eg. , working transoms, vintage mantels) meet modern updates (even a central vac!). 3 brs, 2.5 bas, well-proportioned LR & Dr, each w/ wkng fpl, spiffy Kitchn, charming patio, full basement. Terrif location, just off Lincoln Pk.”

“Hey there – my neighbor’s place just went on the market. $709K asking. We’ve had 3 houses sell on our block in the last 2 mos for over asking, so I’d be curious what folks think of this one. I went to the Open House today, and the place is absolutely gorgeous.”

I think it’s a good looking house but I don’t know 10th Street, NE that well. What do you guys think of the house and of course does $709,000 sound reasonable?
