This Greater Boston property is a home that says 19th century on the outside, but heralds the 21st century on the inside.

Located in Brookline’s Pill Hill neighborhood, 187 Walnut St., is on the market for $2,500,000. The neighborhood’s nickname stems from when many medical professionals resided there in the late 1800s. The brick residence includes five bedrooms, five full bathrooms, one half bathroom, and four fireplaces. It’s officially recognized as a condo.

Built in 1865, the property’s exterior features Second Empire-style accents such as dormers and a mansard roof. The 10-room renovated interior, however, has a contemporary feel and perks that include central air, soaking tubs, frameless-glass showers, high-end stainless-steel appliances, an eat-in kitchen with an island, a deck, and an attached two-car garage. The 3,994-square-foot dwelling sits on 0.38 of an acre.

The listing agent is Eileen Strong O’Boy of Hammond Residential Real Estate.
