The bones of the 3,773-square-foot Colonial at 20 Gray Gardens West in Cambridge's Observatory Hill date from 1810. The 12-room house was originally built in the South Shore town of Duxbury as the home of a sea captain, and transported to its current spot in the 1930s by a new owner, a Harvard prof who had a thing for Colonial architecture. The house was reconstructed atop a new foundation, leaving the early-19th-century flourishes intact.
Twenty Gray Gardens West is on the city's increasingly gobsmacking luxury market as of Wednesday for $2,450,000 through Compass' Christian Jones and John Petrowsky. Have a look around.
