From the outside, this two-bedroom duplex looks like most of the rowhouses that line the grand promenades of Back Bay. But inside, the place is a treasure trove of museum-quality architectural details.

The 1889 home is covered with incredible woodwork. There’s period millwork like wood-paneled wainscoting, crown molding, and ornate built-in bookcases. Multiple fireplaces boast remarkably detailed mantels—one features a carving of a lion’s head. Beyond the impressive craftsmanship, the unit comes with a private parking space and access to a roof deck that offers sweeping views of the Charles.
