On the Market: A Quaint Townhouse in Beacon Hill
36 West Cedar Street, Boston
Size: 3,356 square feet
Situated next to a flower shop, this grey brick townhouse on West Cedar Street is the definition of quaint. Adorned with small barnstars, the building was constructed in 1830. One of its first residents was Susan Paul, an African American abolitionist and teacher at the Smith School, a segregated school for African American children on Joy Street. She was the daughter of Thomas Paul, founder of the African Baptist Church, and wrote Memoir of James Jackson, one of the first biographies of an African American published in the United States.
The townhouse boasts both a patio and a roof deck with space for furniture, a small garden, and a grill. Outside, there’s a private one-car garage. The four-story home has central air conditioning as well as five fireplaces.
