Do you have what it takes to take on the renovation of this Uptown Colonial mansion? The 2800 square-foot space, right off Magazine Street, certainly has potential: there's pretty details including stained glass windows and ornate fireplace mantles, and there's a grand oak tree in the backyard. But the ceiling is in terrible shape in some places (at least, according to the listing, the roof was replaced in 2006) and the flooring certainly needs some work. This "renovation opportunity" doesn't come cheap: the asking price is $795,000.
