On the Market: Paul Revere’s Great Granddaughter’s House
7 Louders Lane, Jamaica Plain
Size: 7,825 square feet
Own a piece of history with this 1897 shingle-style manor in Jamaica Plain. It was built by famed architect Alexander Wadsworth Longfellow (founder of the firm Longfellow, Alden & Harlow) for Paul Revere’s great granddaughter, Susan Torrey Revere Chapin. Both Chapin and her husband, Henry Bainbridge Chapin, were involved in the founding and development of nearby Faulkner Hospital.
Today, gleaming hardwoods complement the well-preserved home’s seven fireplaces. There are leaded windows, pocket doors, plenty of built-ins, and a cast iron stove circa 1879. Many of the bathrooms contain their original marble sinks and vintage fittings. The house also boasts a billiard room, an impressive central staircase, an au pair suite, and a screened-in porch. It’s located on a half-acre plot that’s steps from the Arnold Arboretum and Centre Street.
