Tucked away on an unassuming suburban street in West Mount Airy an Italian-inspired giant—it is an eight-bedroom place, after all—just dropped on the market for $619,900.
The listing describes the spot, with its burnt orange brick and mahogany facade, as an “Italianate villa,” and it looks like an apt categorization. The front features a wrap-around porch, wood columns, and a flat roof. Inside, the rooms are connected by arched doorways, many with the same mahogany trim found outside the home.
In the back of the first floor, a kitchen offers brick walls, a wood stove and an adjacent butler’s pantry.
The eight bedrooms are split between the second and third floors, with access to a sun room from one room, and a covered balcony from three others.
In addition to the eight bedrooms and three bathrooms, the home offers a one-car garage and a full basement. According to the listing, the home was built in the late 1800s, and has come on and off the market several times in the past year.
