Providence, R.I.

$175,000

This 1,536-square-foot Victorian has four bedrooms, two baths and three fireplaces.

The home dates to at least 1860. "That's the farthest back the owners could find records on the house," says Mike Lambrese, Realtor with Re/Max Town & Country. "It's a classic Victorian," he says.

While the systems, such as plumbing, kitchen and electrical, have all been modernized, "The cosmetics were kept traditional," he says.

It has original hardwood floors, 12-foot ceilings, crown molding, and plaster molds around the light fixtures, Lambrese says. The living room, dining room and kitchen all have working fireplaces.

Upstairs there are "three bedrooms, with a sitting area that can be used as an office or bedroom," he says.

"It also has a very inviting backyard -- a (flower) garden, rather than the traditional backyard," Lambrese says. "It's a very, very nice property."

Located in the Elmwood section, the house is "a couple of miles from downtown Providence," he says. It sits on about "one-tenth of an acre -- a typical city lot, as lots go in Providence," Lambrese says.
