Ready to drop a million in Quincy?

I did a double-take when I spotted this Quincy listing. The City of Presidents it may be, but it's not every day you'll find a million dollar listing.

OK, it's not quite a million, but at $999,999, it's close enough for me!

The stately "brick beauty" at 410 Adams St. was built in 1930 and has a Victorian-style turret.

The 3,782-square-foot home has five bedrooms, three full baths and two fireplaces. Looks like it has been updated as well, from fresh paint to an updated electrical system. Nice yard, with a patio and gazebo in back.

Check it out yourself this Sunday - the open house is from 12-2 p.m.

So will it fetch a million, or something close to it?

Well it's pretty expensive for the neighborhood - most of the homes for sale are in the $300,000 to $400,000 range, though there is a house listed at $835,000 around the corner on Reservoir Road.

The Adams Street house last sold for $837,500 back in late 2007, according to Redfin.

Still, I'd take it any day over some of the cookie-cutter colonials selling for well over a million in towns like Lexington and Concord.

Is Quincy ready for a million-dollar deal or is this overpriced? What's your take?
