Historic Boston Home

About the home

This historic Boston Colonial home, built in 1912, is located in Brookline’s Cottage Farm neighborhood, two miles west of downtown Boston. When purchased by the homeowners the house was on the verge of complete deterioration after decades of neglect. The result of their four-year renovation process is a blend
of historic architectural details and materials with modern conveniences, including high-performance electronics, a state-of-the-art kitchen and a modern climate control system.
