Perhaps only in the Boston area can a house marketing itself as a cottage retail for $875K and seem reasonable. The 1,081-square-foot 673 Hammond Street in Brookline’s slice of Chestnut Hill does just that.
Among the 17 rooms of the mansion at 65 Essex Road is a pub. The brick colonial also boasts six bedrooms, six full bathrooms, an incredible 9,282 square feet, a dark room (people still use those?), and a pool. Here’s how much it wants.
The 10-room, 4,192-square-foot 58 Randolph Street in the Brookline slice of Chestnut Hill originally hit the sales market in April for $2,450,000. Within 72 hours, there was a deal pending for it. That didn't pan out, but this one might.
The listing for 160 Fairway Road describes the house.as having a "very Scandinavian touch," which we think is a nod to the clean, modern design and the wood, particularly maple and cedar. It's been on the market only since late September.
The 14-room Tudor is on sale now for $3,500,000. Its listing, improbably enough, presents it not only as a fantastic property, but as a great candidate for ... a teardown? Or a major renovation. Take a look.
The 10-room spread comes with two fireplaces, including one in the downstairs playroom, and a stone terrace amid landscaped grounds. What really grabs one's attention is 58 Randolph's walls. Bright, they are, and unapologetically so.
The 17-room stone house on more than half an acre in Newton comes with its own heraldry stamped into a massive fireplace. That fireplace is in a living room big enough for a wedding reception. The whole thing positively shrieks "manor house."
