Here's your chance to own an iconic piece of Galveston history.

The stunning blue Victorian at 1412 Market Street in the coveted East End Historical District dates back to 1877. Designed by Victorian era master architect Nicholas Clayton, this 3,210-square-foot beauty is also known as the Isadore Lovenberg House, after the Paris-born financier for whom it was built.

Meticulously restored by the current owner, the four-bedroom two-and-a-half-bathroom home boasts countless period details including intricate ceiling medallions, crown molding, hand-stenciled ceilings, an antique stove, stained glass, pendant chandeliers, original hardwood flooring, and so much more.

The home is just as charming from the outside as well. Double verandas, meticulous woodwork, an eye-catching color scheme, and a heated saltwater pool more than earn the property's $724,880 price tag.

The Isadore Lovenberg House is listed by Jim Rosenfeld with Martha Turner Sotheby's International Realty.
