Tuesday Townhouse is Curbed Boston's weekly look at that most genteel of Hub home life: the townhouse.
We can imagine a David Ogden Steirs character reclining insouciantly before the churning parlor fireplace of this Beacon Hill townhouse done in the Colonial style, hand gently cradling the winter evening's second snifter of brandy, mind flipping seamlessly between financial conquests and lines of Kipling. Indeed, this 6-BR, 4-BA coup d'elegance screams gentility, with hardwood floors a deep shade of brown, original molding, marble mantels, high ceilings that do not appear to void the coziness, wine storage, and a separate entrance for the au pair. It retails for $3,650,000. (Extra points to any reader who got the David Ogden Steirs-Beacon Hill connection!)
