Plopped on the corner of Armitage and Orleans, it's no wonder this gorgeous 1876 row home adopted a commercial use. Happily it's of the less obtrusive variety— a homespun art gallery, easily dismantled in favor of plush leather, flatscreens, and gaudy light fixtures. As you can plainly see, the place is in fine shape with decorative moldings, dark hardwoods, 13' ceilings, broad doorways, and an ornate main staircase. Listed as a three-bed with three-and-a-half baths, there's a mystique to that side of the equation as the photo gallery just depicts the common areas and an office space or two. New-to-market, the initial ask is a sturdy $1.995M. But with something like this, there may be a fair amount of give. Convert to a snazzy private home, or retain a commercial use... the choice is yours.
