Built-in 1874 by renowned architects Peabody and Stearns, and lovingly maintained by the same family since 1944, this handsome five-story brick and brownstone building, located in the heart of the Back Bay, is only two blocks from the Public Garden, close to the Charles River Esplanade, Newbury Street shops and restaurants and so much more.

This well-maintained American Academic style home with beautiful French-influenced interiors is presently configured as a five-unit owner-occupied building consisting of the three bedroom owner’s duplex; a two bedroom one bath floor through unit with large partially covered deck; a three bedroom one and a half bath floor through; a one bedroom rear triplex; a front garden level studio; and a rear garden level office.

The owner’s duplex has a large dining room, living room with French Fêtes de Louis XIII wallpaper manufactured by Clerc & Margueridon in Paris, 12-foot ceilings, crown moldings, two full bathrooms and fireplaces with stately mantels in each room.

This 25-foot wide building has a total of 10 bedrooms, six full bathrooms, two half bathrooms, and nine fireplaces. A passenger elevator services all five floors. There is currently one parking space and a courtyard garden in the rear. Future configuration options are many, including a single family with multiple parking spaces and au-pair suite or rental apartment in the back.

This building is a wonderful opportunity for someone to create the home of their dreams in the heart of Boston’s Back Bay.

Living Area: 7231 sq. ft. (not including the basement)
