This fully renovated home is a unique blend of Beacon Hill charm with a little something different. The stunning first floor opens onto a living room complete with wood-beamed 13-foot ceilings, rich olive coloring, a fireplace, and unique terra cotta floors. “You don’t really see that,” says Hammond Real Estate listing agent Robert LeBlanc of the sunken living room.

Beyond the graciousness of the living room, the home also has a beautiful formal dining room as well as a library and a private roof deck. It also benefits from a corner placement, featuring a design with 26 windows, an incredible amount for a city building, which fill the home with fantastic light.

Very close to Massachusetts General Hospital and Charles Street, West Cedar Street and the surrounding area is a popular location for doctors to live. LeBlanc says that the home is thought to have been part of the Underground Railroad because of a tunnel in the basement, so this property certainly has the historical value expected of the area, too.
