On the Market: An Arts and Crafts Home in Winchester
76 Arlington Street, Winchester
Size: 4,056 square feet
Built in 1915, this Arts and Crafts-style home overlooks the Winchester Country Club. In the early 19th-century, the Arts and Crafts movement focused on traditional craftsmanship, which generally was at odds with the ornate Victorian architecture that was popular at the time. The home was designed by famed architect F. Patterson Smith, and has been recently restored and renovated. It boasts a slate roof, leaded windows, and a wealth of Moravian tiles—much like the tiles found at the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. Each of the four bedrooms also has its own private bath.
The walls of the foyer are covered in murals of the Winchester Country Club and the Mystic Lakes. Outside, the yard offers gardens and a bluestone patio. Originally, the grounds housed a chauffeur’s garage, but it was sold in the 1950s. And while it’s closed off now, the garage used to be connected to the home via an underground tunnel.
