One of Hyde Park's oldest homes, this gorgeous five-bedroom Italianate dates to 1865, a full six years before The Fire. The updated spaces still show flashes of vintage. And who doesn't enjoy high ceilings, fireplaces, a wine closet, and a nifty kitchen with a blown open full-wall window to the backyard. The newly finished basement brings the square footage to an ample 3,600. Disregard the public records when it comes to the home's age— we confirmed the earlier date with Robert Sullivan of Urban Search Corp, who added that the home's a well-known elder statesman in the neighborhood. Selling last for $1.45M in 2005, the new ask is just a touch higher at $1.495M.
