Circa 1860. Architecturally intriguing, this exquisite Victorian-era residence, with a mansard roof, is set on over an acre in the Estate neighborhood of Brookline. The living area consists of approximately 7,000 square feet on four levels, with eight bedrooms, six and one-half bathrooms, and features lovely period detail, high ceilings, and abundant light. There is an in-law apartment on the third floor, an oversized detached garage, and a lower level office/playroom that is above-ground. The redesigned kitchen has a connecting octagonal family room with a southern exposure and access to an 18’ x 16’ deck patio. The dining room is perfect for large dinner parties and the 30’ x 20’ living room, with a fireplace, is suitable for grand-scale entertaining. The grounds offer mature landscaping, privacy, and wildlife and a swimming pool, yet the property is easily accessible to public and private schools, shopping in Brookline and Chestnut Hill, and only six miles to downtown Boston.
