Carved Limestone Makes a Grand Entrance in Boston-Edison

New, 48 comments


There are seven bedrooms two Pewabic fireplaces inside this 1914 Boston-Edison mansion, but you might have trouble just getting past the front door. Surrounded with carved limestone, the main entrance was meant to impress. It even has a cartouche, like the Belle Isle Aquarium or the old police headquarters.
You can't legitimately complain about a house with seven bathrooms that's across the street from a park, but the interior is almost disappointingly traditional for a mansion in the architectural free-for-all of Boston-Edison. Which brings us to the asking price of $380K. Maybe you could swing it in Indian Village or Palmer Woods, but Boston-Edison? Nope.
