On the Market: Beacon Hill’s Baby Blue Building
73 Chestnut Street, Beacon Hill
Size: 2,728 square feet
The beloved blue building at 73 Chestnut Street is home to one of Beacon Hill’s many charming antique shops. What the average visitor may not realize, however, is that behind Stephen Score Antiques is a former carriage house that’s been transformed into a grand residence. Built in 1884, the brightly colored facade and attached home boast five fireplaces, a ballroom, a roomy basement, and an eat-in kitchen. Beamed ceilings, original windows, and a host of other architectural details complete the dwelling’s one-of-a-kind atmosphere. While the cool-colored abode stands out among the neighborhood’s famous red bricks, it doubles as a true hidden gem.
