Consider this home a Victorian with a modern, colorful twist.
Built in 1899 in Roxbury’s Fort Hill section, 49 Fort Ave. faces Highland Park and offers 3,239 square feet of space, including a garden-level suite with its own living room, kitchen, and patio access. With five bedrooms and three full baths in all, the four-level home can legally host two families or serve as a spacious dwelling for one, according to the listing.
Dana Schaefer of Compass has listed the property for $1,198,000.
Enter the home via steps to the first floor, which features an atrium, exposed brick, tall windows, high ceilings, a dining room with deck access, and an eat-in kitchen with a mix of green and light-colored cabinets and stainless-steel.
Head to the second floor to find two bedrooms — one is open to the atrium overlooking the first-floor living area — and one bath.
The third floor holds a master suite with a walk-in closet, as well as the fifth bedroom or office space.
Schaefer will host an open house on Saturday, May 18, from noon to 1:30 p.m.
