The historic neighborhood of Germantown is filled with spacious, handsome homes for sale at really reasonable prices. They only catch is that they often need a little bit of elbow grease to bring them back to life, like this 6-bedroom Victorian that’s on the market for $225,000, or about $87 per square foot.
The spacious 2,598-square-foot home is a 3-story twin with six bedrooms and two full bathrooms, each with clawfoot tubs. It features a lot of original architectural details, like interior shutters, columns, and random-width pine floors.
But the home does date back to 1900, so its age does show a bit here and there. The kitchen has had some updating, though the original Victorian built-in and rear staircase add to the home’s character. And because it will likely take a lot to heat all of this space in the winter, it’s worth noting that the home does have a new heater.
