On the Market: A Grand Queen Anne
35 Melville Avenue, Dorchester
Size: 2,870 square feet
This extraordinary Queen Anne Romanesque Revival in Dorchester has a total of 31 stained glass window panels. An intricate one sits above the Tara staircase landing—it is a bay window that’s a selling point all on its own. But the rest of the house is equally as grand with four tiled fireplaces, ten-foot coved ceilings, and parquet floorings with detailed inlays. The home was built in 1885 by Boston city architect Arthur Vinal for his family. Its dining room is especially elaborate, with golden plaster-tiled walls, and another massive stained glass window framed by a Syrian arch.
