On the Market: An Unassuming Palace
366 Main Street, Winchester
Size: 5,394 square feet
Situated on Main St. in Winchester, this charming yellow house isn’t showing its true colors. Its Italianate-style catches the eye, but it’s inside of the home that is truly captivating. Built in 1853, it was owned by copper baron Thomas Lawson. He owned the house from 1897 through 1921, though Lawson was most well-known for his construction of the Dreamwold estate in Scituate. In 1921, ownership turned over to the family now selling the property.
Chock full of fine wooden craftsmanship, 12-foot ceilings, and custom-carved fireplaces (with demon-like details shown below), the mansion is truly a marvel. The home also includes an antique pantry, library, and sitting room. Its listing reads, “seldom does a house appear on the market in its unspoiled glory”—and we agree.
