On the Market: A Romanesque Residence in Beacon Hill
Its courtyard has been a stop on the Hidden Gardens of Beacon Hill tour.
36 Pinckney Street, Boston
Size: 3,612 square feet
Most of the brick buildings lining the narrow streets of Beacon Hill look pretty similar—and that’s, of course, part of the neighborhood’s charm. But the three-bedroom home for sale at 36 Pinckney Street stands apart, with no black shutters or window boxes in sight. Instead of blending in with a classic Federal-style facade, a Romanesque arch dominates the home’s entryway.
Built in 1883, the stately abode is just a few houses down from Louisa May Alcott’s childhood home. Inside, there are high ceilings, crown molding, and period built-ins, plus a wood-paneled library and multiple dressing rooms. Outside, there’s a garden that’s just barely visible from the street. The little brick courtyard has been a much-loved stop on the Hidden Gardens of Beacon Hill tour. Above, an airy reading nook opens to a roof deck offering views of the Hill.
