What a spectacular house! How about that staircase! This painted lady is a Connecticut landmark and was built in 1890. It is located in Hartford, Connecticut. It last served as an office building.

The home features original hardwood floors, a grand staircase, extensive crown molding and baseboards, pocket doors, and solid wood doors with original hardware. Four bedrooms, six bathrooms, and 9,246 square feet. $725,000 New price: $650,000
