On the Market: A Condo in a Gothic Revival Cottage
447 Washington Street #1, Brookline
Size: 1,210 square feet
Brookline isn’t known for its Gothic Revival architecture, which is what makes this Gothic cottage on Washington Street so unique. Built around 1850, the Candler Cottage was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1985. It sticks out like a sore thumb in the neighborhood, as the dark, gable-roofed house is surrounded by several large residential buildings.
In the 1950s, the historical home was converted into a three-family residence, and now, a rare opportunity to live in the cottage has presented itself—a first-floor unit hit the market this week for just under $850,000. It boasts a 2012 renovation, which left the place with a modern, blank slate-like interior. There’s also a charming outdoor patio and a deck.
