Price: $2,700,000
Size: 5,183 square feet
Bedrooms: 5
Baths: 5 full, 2 half

Not many properties within city limits claim in-ground pools, never mind a yard large enough to build one. But this Victorian mansion for sale in Jamaica Plain does boast the kind of splashy summertime hangout that’s usually reserved for suburban abodes.

Indeed, the lap pool in this 10,000-square-foot lot is quite the treat. It’s temperature-controlled, for one, and is situated beside a bluestone patio with a fireplace and seating, plus a lush private garden. The house counts plenty of bells and whistles on the inside, too, including a conservatory, a library, (Clue fans, rejoice) and a chef’s kitchen with a walk-in pantry. The ornately carved fireplaces, crown moldings, and stained glass windows are just the cherry on top.
