 These attractive properties are augmented by an equally attractive Main Street with a new performing arts center in the making at the historic Lansdowne Theatre.

.All for a reasonable price.

The Plumstead Avenue Revival  at $459,900 has a Tudor-style half-timbered facade and a wraparound front porch. A built-in cabinet adds an unusual touch.

There’s a glass-enclosed sun porch on the front porch’s left side.

Inside, there’s traditional because of features like hardwood floors, built-in china closets and a living room brick fireplace. Modern because it uses a totally open plan, part of a recent makeover.
