Last week, a piece of Somerville history went up for sale.
Dorothea Feffer of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Winchester has listed 35 Powder House Terrace — a 3,412-square-foot, 11-room home one of the city’s former mayors built around 1900 — for $1,329,000.
Zebedee Cliff served four terms as Somerville mayor, from 1914 to 1917. Before that, the former carpenter was on the Board of Aldermen, the Board of Health, and in the Massachusetts House of Representatives. Beyond Cliff’s political prowess, he was also a notable real estate developer. According to the home’s listing, Cliff managed more than $2,000,000 worth of construction.
The Colonial sits on 0.12 of an acre and offers six bedrooms and four baths and period features like pocket doors. The residence is “waiting to be restored to its original splendor,” according to the listing.
Cliff’s own home, which was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1989, is up the street at 29 Powder House Terrace.
