This 1870s mansion sits on a corner lot in the Back Bay, and it looks like a real-life version of the fanciest Victorian dollhouse you’ve ever seen. Designed by Massachusetts architect Charles Brigham, the property has the storied past you’d imagine—spending time as a dwelling for prominent Bostonians, once partitioned into three separate apartments, and once standing as a children’s clinic before a restoration that transformed the place back to a single-family home in 1997. With five levels, an elevator, nine bedrooms, and other expected features, like period fireplaces (11 total), a walnut-paneled library, and climate-controlled wine storage, the home has some of the grandest rooms in the city.

A recent story in the summer 2014 issue of Boston Home, features the owners, Boston-based actress Christy Scott Cashman and her husband, construction mogul Jay Cashman. Jay had admired the home for years, and he finally purchased it, neglected interiors and all, for $2.4 million in 1997. Designer Lisa Davis worked with the couple to redesign the interiors.

If you’re interested in buying, keep in mind that artwork and selected chandeliers are not included in the listing price.
