Located a few blocks from Jamaica Pond, this 1898 home was remodeled in 2014 into two separate condos: one traditional, and one with a decidedly contemporary touch rarely found in historical properties. This multilevel penthouse unit features a private elevator; a great room with 18-foot beamed ceilings; two gas fireplaces; and a marble-clad kitchen.
Skylights brighten the interiors, which we’d deck out with Gus Design Group’s  “Carmichael Loft” sofa from Lekker and the  “Lawson” bar console by Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams. The brass-and-Lucite  “Jacques” pendant from Jonathan Adler, meanwhile, would make a bold statement in the sleek, open kitchen. To complete the look, we’d wallpaper the LED-lit staircase with a  striking print by Eskayel.
