Description

Seize a rare opportunity to own one of Boston’s finest historic homes located in a privileged area in suburban Boston just 7 miles from downtown Boston and Cambridge.

Built in 1910 for the Emerson family, this home has been lovingly and carefully renovated by the current owner of 20 years with top of the line materials & craftsmanship while respecting the original Georgian revival architecture. Bellevue Avenue has been twice named one of the best streets to live on in Suburban Boston by Boston Magazine and is locally referred to as Doctors’ Row due to the large number of doctors who chose the avenue to build their fine residences.

Located on a double lot, this luxury residence offers the fortunate owner numerous special areas for elegant living & entertaining: the sophisticated fireplaced living room, cosy library, fireplaced grand dining room, open concept kitchen and private backyard with koi pond & pergolas, fun for entertaining or a simple family barbecue.

The large third floor has a separate private entrance, features 2 bedrooms, marble bath with jacuzzi, wet bar/kitchenette, laundry, a large living room with original palladian windows and its own central air conditioning system: ideal for extended family, guests or possible conversion to an additional massive master suite or home office/atelier.

Enjoy the original architectural details: 9-foot ceilings, moldings, cornices, pilasters, columns, beamed ceiling and 3 working fireplaces. With its enviable expansive lot and massive driveway and patios lavishly paved in brick, this stately home has it all.

Two master suites feature elegant marble baths, Jacuzzis, custom vanities adapted from antique Hepplewhite and Sheraton sideboards, floor to ceiling travertine walls, historic wallpaper, period style chandeliers and a wet bar for morning coffee.

The renovated kitchen boasts black and white granite wainscoting, floor and counters; oversize 5 burner Italian stove, imported 17 c Portuguese tile backsplash, stainless appliances…and a view of the private back patio with pond and pergolas.

The house features 2 separate central air systems, recent energy- efficient gas boiler steam heating, recent oversized 75 gallon gas water heater, updated electrical, plumbing and replacement energy efficient windows, new front deck, columns and exterior painting.

The ecological landscaping with custom masonry walls, fountains and patios is elegant and easily maintained.
