Built in 1845 and set on just under one acre of land, this Victorian home is located in Brookline’s Sargent Estate Area. The property, listed for just under $5 million, includes the five-bedroom main residence, a pool house with a 54-foot pool and spa, and a one-bedroom apartment above a carriage house.

With renovations recently completed in 2013, the home’s 19th-century facade was restored, and the interiors were reinvented to include modern, contemporary design details.

Outside, traditional blue siding and a contrasting vivid door set the tone. The living room features period details and a walk out terrace overlooking the back yard. The kitchen includes contemporary cabinetry, polished concrete counters, a free standing range, and a breakfast nook. Hardwood flooring, built-in shelving, and clean-lined windows and doorways are found throughout the home.

The pool house has floor-to-ceiling windows and opens to a large green space.
