27 Devon Road, Brookline

Everyone’s looking for their own slice of paradise in the city—and the new owners of this Chestnut Hill manse will have found theirs. Hedged by boxwoods and towering Alberta spruces, the home is barely visible from the sidewalk. Through a gateway and up the brick walkway, the front door opens into the foyer, which is a mood board for the entirety of the home: Original leaded windows, coffered ceilings, and a stately staircase all work together to create a habitat that’s as grand as it is cozy.
Travel up those steps to see the two stories of fireplaced bedrooms, sizable bathrooms, and elegant offices above the main level. Or, stay on the ground floor to tap out a tune in the piano room, set a place in the paneled dining room, or start on dinner in the well-equipped kitchen. There, a double oven, farmhouse sink, and full wall of custom cabinetry center around a circular island outfitted with cookbook storage and barstool seating.
One step down from the kitchen, a tiled floor spreads out underneath a less formal dining and living room. A glass-and-wood solarium (which was completely rebuilt following the 2015 snowpocalypse) surrounds the sitting area, engulfing the room in sunlight and doubling as a massive window into the backyard: A private oasis filled with Japanese maples, perennial beds, and a decorative brick patio.
