House of the Day: Historic Beacon Hill Beauty
This 8,450-square-foot behemoth of a townhouse overlooks Boston Public Garden from its perch in Beantown's historic and chic Beacon Hill neighborhood.
Designed by one of early America's most influential architects, Asher Benjamin, and built in 1828, the six-floor, fully restored home has 17 total rooms which rest behind a stately granite exterior. They include six bedrooms, six bathrooms, a media room, an au pair suite, and an over-the-top kitchen with a vault for the family silver.
It's hard to imagine getting jaded with the place: From rooms encased in custom-crafted marble to others of coffered ceilings and walnut-stained walls, the home offers splashes of fresh ambience behind each doorway. There's also a pool.
Tracy Campion of Campion and Company has the listing.
