Jamaica Plain is chock full of colorful, spacious, and historic homes. The largest house for sale in the neighborhood happens to be all three.

A new report from real estate analytics firm NeighborhoodX has identified the 10 largest homes for sale in JP. The biggest one of all, at 7 Louders Lane, is a historic mansion that once belonged to Paul Revere’s great granddaughter.

It was built in 1897 by famed architect Alexander Wadsworth Longfellow (founder of the firm Longfellow, Alden & Harlow) for Revere’s relative, Susan Torrey Revere Chapin. At a whopping 7,825 square feet, the place asks $2,295,000.

“The larges—and second-most-expensive—property on an asking price basis, 7 Louders Lane, appears to be significantly underpriced,” says Constantine Valhouli, director of research for NeighborhoodX. “At $293 per square foot for the historically significant building with a remarkably intact interior, it is asking less than the more modest single-family house at 29 Catherine Street, for $318 per square foot, or the one at 30 Elm Street, for $577 per square foot.”

Indeed, if the home at 7 Louders Lane was priced similarly per square foot to other houses on the list, it would command between about $2.5 and $4.5 million.

Other sizable spots include a 5,000-square-foot multifamily building on Centre Street and a few huge condos within JP’s Allandale development. Check out the full list of homes below.
