House of the Week: $1.35 million for a row house in the middle of Cabbagetown
The Place: A restored red-brick row house (say that five times fast) nestled on a quiet street in Cabbagetown.
Bragging Rights: An updated kitchen, revamped bathrooms and coffered ceilings in the living room give a fresh and airy feel to this home, originally built around 1900.
Big Selling Point: Tucked away on a quiet part of Wellesley, this home is nearer to Riverdale Farm’s animals than any potentially sleep-disrupting party animals.
Possible Deal Breaker: The downstairs laundry room is outfitted with new, high-tech Maytag machines, a handy sink and the same marble seen throughout the house. Even so, it’s hard not to notice the open ceiling, which may bother some homeowners more than others.
By the Numbers:
• 115 years old, approximately
• 11.5 foot ceilings in the living room/dining room
• 9.5 foot ceilings in the upstairs bedrooms
• 4 bathrooms
• 3 bedrooms
• 1 parking space
