The flier says:

“A rare opportunity to own a grand-scale home on a very large lot with loads of parking in convenient, popular Historic Mount Pleasant. This gorgeous home has a lovely wraparound porch with access to a charming side yard with fish pond and a walkway to a huge rear yard. The house is filled with handsome original details, and the kitchen has been expanded to include a sunny breakfast/den area with a 2-story ceiling and a fireplace!”

You can find more info here and more info and photos here.

Always fun to get a look inside former houses of the day. This 6 bed/4.5 bath is going for $1,199,000 – sound right?

    Dang…This property looks awesome.

  • I can haz? If I had that much money, I would buy that house. It’s a decent neighborhood (and probably going to get even better) and the house is beautiful!

  • Hoodrat

    Yes, please.

  • Bear

    Me likey.

  • Cory

    Seems pretty well priced considering a townhouse on lamont is going for about the same money and doesn’t have nearly as much square footage or land.

  • pop-up owner

    I love this house.

  • anon

    The porch and the yard are the best features of this beautiful house. They are absolutely perfect!

  • 14th St Heights

    Only drawback is it’s right on the H4 line (noisy) and pretty close to Mt. Pleasant St. Other than that, gorgeous house!

    • Anonymous

      I think living that close to Mt. Pleasant St is a plus!

      Buses aren’t really that loud and they don’t run often. Not buying a house becuase it is on a busy street is one thing, but beccuase of a bus line that maybe runs 4 times an hour is something else.

  • LCM

    Beautiful house and an incredible outdoor space. I say worth every penny. Anyone want to buy it for me?

  • Kate

    It looks like they gave their washer/dryer the best room in the house! Why did they turn that lovely room with the windows into a laundry room!?!?

    • 4nature

      might as well make chores the most enjoyable part of the day!

  • Spectacular. $1.2 is steep for a Mt. Pleasant home that doesn’t border on the park, but so tastefully redone, so much space, and so gorgeous, it seems priced about right.

  • Cait B

    There are lots of $1M+ homes that I like to look at, but would never buy, even if I won the lottery or found a bag of money. I would buy this if I could!

  • MichelleRD

    Wow. Few GDON spark my house lust, but this one does. I want it.

  • Pokerface

    I wanna be celebrating Cinco de Mayo on that porch right now!! I can almost taste the margarita on the tip of my tongue. :)

  • greent

    Much much love, and yes it sounds well priced.

  • PetworthRes

    I can’t believe I am about to say this…but $1.2 sounds pretty reasonable. That is a great house.
