Looking for a spooky Victorian home to scare the neighborhood children? This stone pile in Philadelphia might be just the place. That said, the handsome stone home might also appeal to renovators looking to update a historic 1880s classic. The solidly constructed home boasts five bedrooms and three baths spread over 3,400 square feet, several extremely detailed original fireplaces, and a long gracious driveway. There are drawbacks though, as the house counts a less-than-charming strip mall as an immediate neighbor and the kitchen will likely need a complete overhaul, but that's to be expected when the current owners have been in place for more than 40 years. In 1971, when the house last sold, it brought just $28K. Now it's asking an aspirational $565K.
