On the Market: Architectural History in Ashmont
296 Ashmont Street, Dorchester
Size: 3,172 square feet
Among a cluster of Victorian homes on a hill, this substantial shingle-style manor boasts plenty of architectural charm. Built in 1889 in Dorchester’s Ashmont neighborhood, the home was designed by a local—architect Edwin J. Lewis. Lewis was known for his shingle-style houses, and this preserved structure on Carruth’s Hill exhibits some of his finest work. The interior features a butler’s pantry with a wet bar, several pocket doors, and a half-moon seating area adjoining the dining room. With its abundance of gables and leaded glass windows, the home’s old-world charm won’t be lost among its more modern amenities.
