This li’l Victorian on Kane St. dates to 1890 — that’s according to the plaque by the door. (You can’t miss it.) In the Old Sixth Ward south of Washington and east of Sawyer St., this lot at 2211 Kane actually has 2 houses — the historic one you see here front and slightly off-center and another at the back of the 5,000-sq.-ft. property. Each has 2 bedrooms and 1 bath, accented throughout by stained glass and staged for the listing with wine glasses. The price for the two of ’em? $319,000.
The living room, 20 ft. by 13 ft., opens up to the 2 bedrooms — not pictured in the listing — and kitchen.
Some of the choices in décor suggest the previous residents weren’t quite sure how to behave in such an historic structure and needed reminders here and there:

A second porch, facing west:
The brick path leads around to the other house . . .
