The mansion at 9 Lawrence Road in Chestnut Hill, Newton, comes with 11 fireplaces and 20 rooms total. Curiously enough, half of those rooms are bathrooms: eight full and two halves. Relief is never far away, we guess. Otherwise, the more than 10,300-square-foot spread on nearly 1 acre is suitably bonkers. The living room, where the ceiling soars to 12 feet, looks like something out of Downton Abbey and a 110-year-old stone wall runs about the estate. There's a two-car garage to boot. Nine Lawrence has been on the market since early April through Gibson Sotheby's for $4,650,000.
