The 1,951-square-foot, three-bedroom, detached house at 2622 Clark Dr. is set to go officially on the market today. It's been listed at $599,000.

"It's very rare, and that's why all the excitement," said RE/MAX realtor Mary Cleaver during an open house on the weekend.

The 1911 house sits on only a half lot and looks out on a busy street, but the old house has plenty of character and was built to last.

"I believe this house was, potentially, saved because it is on a different kind of lot, one that isn't necessarily appealing to builders. So this has been a lovely family home for 100 years and, if well taken care of, could house a family 100 years from today," she said.
