Part of the appeal of Boston is how it brings together old-fashioned charms with the sleekness of a modern city. This Brookline house embodies that same spirit. Built in 1925, the home has all the classic characteristics of a Georgian mansion from its symmetrical brick exterior to the elegant arched embellishments over the front door. But inside is a chic, contemporary living space.
Details like a white marbled waterfall island and a matching backsplash in the custom, luxury kitchen bring this home into the twenty-first century. With tons of natural lighting, you’ll want to spend time in this space even when you’re not cooking a meal. But you may be lured away by the formal living room with a gas fireplace or the paneled office with custom built-ins. White wood paneling and chandeliers throughout help maintain some of the glamour from the era when the home was first built.
On the second floor, you’ll find five bedrooms, including a main suite with a walk-in closet and bathroom. Three bathrooms, a study, and a laundry room complete this level while two additional bedrooms and a full bathroom comprise the third floor. A finished basement with a playroom, full bathroom, kitchenette, and “bonus room” provide plenty of space for a growing family. You can move easily between levels with the home elevator, another touch that makes this home state-of-the art.
But no living space today is complete without an outdoor entertainment space. Luckily, this house comes equipped with a formal dining room with classic French doors that open up to a beautifully manicured front yard, opening up endless possibilities when it comes to indoor-outdoor living. A bluestone patio is the perfect spot for a cookout while fine landscaping provides a beautiful backdrop when taking in those perfect Boston summer nights.
