From the outside, this Colonial Revival manse in Cambridge looks much the way it did when it was built in 1899. But inside, the home balances its antique features with more modern updates, making for a cozy—and contemporary—retreat across the Charles.

There’s a reason the property commands almost $5.5 million. The place spreads out to more than 6,500 square feet, offering top-of-the-line fixtures and finishes in every room. The kitchen boasts a Sub-Zero refrigerator and Aga stove, while one of the five bathrooms offers a walk-in glass shower and double vanities. The six bedrooms, meanwhile, feature oversized windows to let in plenty of sunlight. The cherry on top—or bottom, in this case—is the finished basement. Clad in wood panels and whitewashed brick, it’s a stylish space to study, relax, work out, or all three.
