Property Description

This is a golden opportunity for buyers who would like to restore a Victorian beauty to its full potential. In pristine condition a house of this quality and in this location would probably fetch in the low to mid-900,000 range. It is currently priced at $645,000 (as-is). Awash with sunlight, beautiful detail, and 19th century charm, this home offers six bedrooms, three full baths, and two half-baths, on a large, wooded corner lot on one of Chestnut Hill's premier blocks. A particularly lovely entrance hall with tiled fireplace (one of four in the house), and a window/ window seat combination that epitomizes the genius of the architecture, first greets the visitor. Designed by renowned American architect Theophilus Parsons Chandler in
the Queen Anne Victorian style, the property still retains the fine details of that era ? deep window sills, high ceilings, beautifully wrought woodwork- while recent updates include central air (2010), many new windows (2014) and many freshly painted rooms. Outside, a classic sitting porch overlooks a yard framed with magnificent trees and extensive native plantings including rhododendron, yew, azalea, and forsythia. It would be hard to find a lovelier house in a more convenient location, within easy walking distance to the village and to both commuter rail stations.
