Have a Love-Hate With Victorians? Here's the Solution

Here now, From Curbed Marketplace, highlighting an intriguing pick from that spot at the top of the page that rotates listings and makes real estate junkies refresh and refresh and refresh the page until the trackpad is dotted with blood.

This modest-sized house is really sweet for someone who likes the whole Clark Park/Woodlands Cemetery neighborhood feel but isn't a big fan of crown moulding and Victorian interiors. The front porch won an award from the University City Historical Society for its renovation, but inside the house has plenty of modern touches, like central air, so you don't have to hoist a 50 lb. oddly sized antique window that can't even fit an air conditioner. The current owners have clearly taken good care of the place, and we even like the decal on the second-floor hallway (though: Put a bird on it!). The backyard space is great to have, and the closet built-ins left us breathless.

All that being said, a similar house on that block sold last year for for $375,000, and there's a larger home farther up on the block with quirkier details (and a bit more charm) selling for $438,500. The price on this one may have to come down again after an April price chop.

Size: 4 beds, 2 baths, 1,780 square feet
Price: $445,000
Recent price chop: -$14,900
Frenzied parent bonus: Penn Alexander Catchment
